If I understand you correctly, you are trying to convice Firefox
inside Parallels to connect to Privoxy running on the host system?

If that's the case you will either have to bind Privoxy to a
non-local listen address or skim through the Parallels documentation
to see if there's another way to reach the host's from
the guest system.
