Is your proxy supporting https GET requests ? httrack is currently unable to
use the pass-through feature (CONNECT) and rely on direct GET commands in
clear text.

Can you try this on a console (if you can access to a unix-style console) (one
single line):

echo -en "GET <>
HTTP/1.0\r\nHost:\r\nProxy-Authorization: Basic
ENCODED_RESULT\r\n\r\n" | nc ip_of_squid_proxy 8080

With ENCODED_RESULT being the base64 user:pass form you can compute here for

If you get something like:
The following error was encountered:
Unsupported Request Method and Protocol

Then your proxy is not allowing direct GET in https.
