Fiddling with proxy settings in /opt/amazon/ebook/config/browser_prefs

There was a thread on here last year where there was allusion that a "simple one line change" to /opt/amazon/ebook/config/browser_prefs could effectively bypass or remove the Amazon proxy check. However, I'm not having any luck at this (and the original poster does not remember what he/she did when I contacted them).

Simply removing the line which specifies or using doesn't work. It cripples all internet access.

My motives are fairly benign in case anyone is wondering. I'm just trying to "right a wrong": fiddling a way to being able to use Wikipedia French in addition to the Wikipedia English that is currently the only site allowed by the proxy from here in Canada. It's a bilingual country after all...
