OK, I understand that you are using DeleGate as a gateway between
HTTP cleints and a HTTPS server, reached via another HTTP proxy.

 |certificate again. If this wouldn't happen, it should be OK.

Any URL of "https://..." in responses from the server must be rewriten
to "http://..:4711/" before it is relayed to a client to make it work
as you expect.
If you are required a certificate for the "https://...", then it means
some URLs are not rewritten so.
A very possible situation is that a URL including https:// is returned
in JavaScript, CSS and SWF.  DeleGate does not MOUNT (search URLs in)
such documents by default.  It need to be enabled as follows:


Another possible solution is using STLS=mitm instead of MOUNT.
