Problems with squid on friendster

installed my pfsense on p4, 512mb memory, also added squid package yesterday…
all went well, tested squid caching with no problems at all with some websites
but when i deployed my pfsense machine on the network just now, i was horrified that users reportedly
cannot log-in to their friendster account, although i browsed a few sites (hereby caching some of them)
including friendster, it works ok but i did not log-in to friendster at the time...so I tested the friendster
log-in problem, after entering username + password on friendster and then clicking the login button
the profile page doesnt load...or it seems to load slowly, where as i tested without the squid cache
it doesnt have any problems, i know this is a bug in squid, have the same windows version of squid
and it also have the same problem, is there a workaround for this? before i deployed squid on my server
machine using ramdrive for the cache, im very happy that upon installing pfsense, there is also a squid
package, and i would really like to have squid on the pfsense machine (offloading the server)...
im currently using the latest stable version of pfsense (not the rc release)
recap, the problem is by using squid, users cannot login to friendster, is there a solution/workaround for this? also already searched for a possible solution for this, but i did not find one...
thanks for the help...

If your using squid from pfsense package and using default configuration then probably the kern.ipc.nmbclusters is zero.
sysctl kern.ipc.nmbclustersand if zero then set```
I've encounter this kind of issues before when caching dynamic contents like URL contents with ? Most servers like friendster have no Cache-Control header on thier index.php(but i think its fixed already). So i have added to my squid.conf refresh_pattern \.php 0 0% 0 as a result this will not cache all URL the has .php
