Squid reverse proxy https

The design is
Client => HTTPs(8443) => SQUID reverse proxy => HTTP(9090) => webserver.

Squid configuration:
acl SSL_ports port 8443
acl Safe_ports port 8443
https_port 8443 cert=/usr/CertAuth/testcert.cert key=/usr/CertAuth/testkey.pem defaultsite=sus1.boeinglabnet.net vhost
cache_peer parent 9090 0 no-query no-digest originserver login=PASS front-end-https=on name=sus1.boeinglabnet.net

Now for the crux of the problem on HTTPS  
Client sends a "HTTPS POST" request to SQUID.  SQUID forwards the POST (in HTTP) request to Bugzilla (  Bugzilla returns a new "Location" in the Header with an absolute URL:

SQUID proxy resoved it (it is missing the https)

I am really stump on this.  Would need expert help.
