As I already wrote above, CONNECT requests are limited to
port 443 (or blocked to every port) by default and as a result
attempts to CONNECT to port 8443 get blocked.

Which means the proxy-using browser will use HTTP CONNECT while
trying to open the SSL connection.

Usually HTTPS connections use port 443 which isn't blocked.

As mentioned above, the error message is send as HTTP header.
