You have sniffed the network both before and after the proxy right?
Have you looked for anything in your error files?

This should not be happening however...

This could ofcourse be a case of your application server not being
http/html complient. As Internet Explorer is less picky that could
explain things.

What happens if you do the test directly to the application server,
bypassing the proxy?
