    I'm not sure that the 50m may be the problem. AFAIK there is no limit but a very large file may cause performance issues. Some article I have seen say 50 k is sufficient. Try reducing the file size to 20M if you feel the need and see if you still have the problem.

    Yes 50MB is not a problem. Generally, Squid checks for matches in the order they are written in the squid config file. Check that file from top to bottom and make sure there is no limit.

    Thanks for Reply to both of you Mr ToddN2000 & Mr Subhendu Sen sir.
    Now the current ACL file size is up to 15 KB only & it is working But many unwanted sites are still opened & I need to block that also therefore I have downloaded a squid blocklist from ( http://www.squidguard.org/blacklists.html ) this site to block all unwanted sites & here almost all unwanted sites are mention. but this downloaded file is so big. 

    actually I tried to split that file in 10 MB but same thing only happened
