The browser thinks the error page was generated by the origin server.
Popular browsers essentially do not recognize forward proxies as
legitimate content sources so there is no way for Squid to tell the
browser that the error page is coming from Squid itself.
If images in your error pages use a relative image path (including an
empty path like in your example above) and do not define their own base
URL using HTML, then the browser will use the _request_ URL path as the
base URL, as if the error page came from the origin server that
experienced the error.

Squid-generated content, including error pages, may use a
/squid-internal-static/ path that Squid can then recognize in image
requests and recognize that the user wants Squid-generated content. See
global_internal_static and short_icon_urls directives.
