What does "navigation stops anyway" mean exactly?
Which operating system do you use?

Anyway, if you already disabled filtering and if you are
using socks4a, it's unlikely that Privoxy is the cause of your

Using Tor isn't going to make your browsing faster.

Squid isn't an anonymous proxy at all (and neither is Privoxy).

How is Squid's cache going to make your browsing faster?
Doesn't have your browser its own cache already?

You could replace Privoxy with another proxy that supports
socks. Check the archive for a recent discussion about Polipo
<http://www.pps.jussieu.fr/~jch/software/polipo/>, it seems
to be the current recommendation of at least one of the
Tor developers.

Polipo is a caching proxy with limited header filtering
capabilities, if you don't need content filtering, you probably
can remove Squid from your proxy chain as well.
