Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

NextDNS should solve the problem

Yes, it probably would, but switching to a different software does as well. The more people leave Audacity, the more likely they will change their mind about good and bad ways to track users.

Being a software developer myself, I agree that telemetry can be important. Yet, the GDPR exists for a reason.

All right, so time for the most boring annoying reply: Got home, rebooted the computer, downloaded the betas, tried to get into precisely where it crashes - and am totally unable to reproduce. Damn ...
I can't decide if I should be happy or sad about that. :)

But likely the best would be to go for the full title first, and then a "found nothing, trying to find more"?
This is one of those things that is easier said than done. The problem is the multi-threaded nature. Essentially what happens is that regardless of search type (MBID, Artist/Album, TOC) we build out a request, and then it's handed off to another thread which makes the call and then a catchall callback takes the results and makes a request for each album in the results.

From this callback there's no non-hacky way to know what the original search type was, or how to get back to the original calling code block. Without some significant refactoring it becomes kind of a big mess of global variables and "if (callWasMadeAndNoResultsTryThis)".

I don't disagree with you that that's the way things should operate, but we're mostly stuck with trying to fix things up pre-search rather than post. I welcome all PRs though.

@sveakul , please, try v0.40
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
also "no lyrics yet" text from are now discarded.
Veksha I've done some brief testing with .40 and am happy (actually, excited) to say that so far, so good!!  NO CRASHES.  And was able to "Next lyrics" through several sources including songlyrics.  The only difference is the searching happens slower, but that's not a bad thing, taking a bit more time for stability is ALWAYS worth it.  I don't have more time today but will be using it again tomorrow and let you know how things go after a longer shakedown.  THANKS for not giving up on this!!
