ppp+ means match anything starting ppp, so this should be fine.

Which version of firehol are you using? That may be pertinent these

Are you saying these are the browser requests? Odd.

I can't see anything obviously wrong with the config but I am not in
a position to test it. I presume your squid is correctly set to
transparent proxy? I expect that could cause odd problems if not.

Could you run a controlled test, i.e. start the firewall then (try to)
browse to somewhere new and extract the recent firewall logs so we can see.
Ideally use wget or curl and report what it says too (timeout, connection
refused etc.). Does your squid log have the request in it?
