But the workaround is to setup the redirect to a web server you control
that explains how to setup the browser to use your proxy, instead of
trying to transparently direct it to squid.

Ie, --to-destination as well as --to-port (so you don't have to run a
web server on your firewall).

iptables -t nat --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-destination
my.proxyinstruction.server --to-port 80

When you setup the web server, just map all URLs to the proxy setup
instructions (because iptables can't change the requested URL). If you
have an machine running as an existing web server, just use a different
port number and a virtual host, or similar.
