Yes. The way the browser tries to set up a https connection through the
proxy is by using the CONNECT method over an unencrypted connection that
is later turned into an encrypted one (tunneled through the proxy).
HttpListener is expecting a TLS connection and the browser is sending
plain text data... That's why the connection is being reset.

You would need to listen with http://*:9667/ and then handle the CONNECT
method appropriately.
