So, I click on "Walking on a thin line" which is the album title at
the top of RB and it opens firefox with these tabs:


Opening firefox by clicking its icon in the panel gives me one blank
tab, like I set it up to have.

FC3 rhythmbox, rhythmbox-0.8.8-1

I think this is a bug in the way that RB calls the browser.  It should probably
quote or url-encode the album or band name.

The number of tabs opened is dependent on the number of words in the album or
band name.

I clicked on The Real Thing (a Faith No More album) and ended up with three
tabs.  The first was,
the second was
(RealPlayer download page), and the third was (for the movie "The Thing").

I think the second and third are base on search results initated by Firefox.

This problem still exists in FC4t1.

Ah, I remember this one.  Fixed in 0.9.4-1.fc5.1, which is currently in
updates-testing for FC5 and will get pushed as an update soon.  From the changelog:

2006-03-14  William Jon McCann  <>

        * widgets/rb-header.c (rb_header_sync): Escape album and
        artist before adding to markup.
