lyrics stopped working after update to 1.4.3

Amarok has had issues with lyrics scripts and proxies ever since
lyrics fetching was made scriptable. There have been several attempted
fixes, and personally I thought it might be working in 1.4.3. However,
having looked, there has been one more change to the Lyrc script in

Try using that to replace the official 1.4.3 Lyrc script, which should
be located at `kde-config

The other thing worth checking is your KDE proxy settings (especially
if you don't run KDE), by running "kcontrol".

If those two still don't work, all I can suggest is you get out
Wireshark (formerly Ethereal) and try to capture the packets to see
what's going wrong.
