Here're the rules I use, as exported by iptables-save:

:OUTPUT ACCEPT [3302:231317]
-A OUTPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 80 -m owner --uid-owner dansguardian -j
-A OUTPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 3128 -m owner --uid-owner dansguardian
-A OUTPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 8888 -m owner --uid-owner dansguardian
-A OUTPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-ports 8080
-A OUTPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 3128 -j REDIRECT --to-ports 8080

Note they are all in the nat chains.  Basically this only lets processes
owned by "dansguardian" (which I also run tinyproxy or squid as) access
port 80.  Also I block non-dansguardian access to squid or tinyproxy's
port (to any destination, even foreign proxies) to the local
dansguardian port.

This should do what you want, if you can figure out how to put it in ufw
rules.  I never bothered to learn the new, dumbed-down tools in ubuntu
and others; I stick to native iptables
