Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 144891
Clicking Album name opens 5 tabs that have nothing to do with the album

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
I clicked on The Real Thing (a Faith No More album) and ended up with three
tabs. The first was http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&opt1=2&sql=The,
the second was http://www.real.com/player/?lang=en&loc=au&src=intl_au-home
(RealPlayer download page), and the third was
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0084787/ (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:
