When I stop squid using the (stop) button it stops and does not automagically start again 'till I tell it to.
When does it automagically start again? on pfSense reboot?
I suggest as a temporary work around to remove the package, it will remember your settings, then re-install it when you need it again.
Is it really stopped, is the PID file gone from /var/run/?
Thank you for your help.
When I stop Squid service it just restarts and the pid in /var/run/squid.pid changes. Will remove and re-install as a work around but it is not as convenient.

IIRC, If you do not select any interface to listen, it will disable the service.
That's the ticket, do not bind to any interface to disable Squid service. Need to hold the ctrl key to toggle select and de-select.
