Hi!

I discovered a bug (feature ;P) with the "search internet" function on the "Add artist" page/popup. Firstly, the search buttons only search for what's entered in the "Sortname*" field and ignores the entry in the "Name" field. Secondly, the searches work in an unexpected way, see explanation below.

When nothing is entered in the "Sortname*" field:
The Google button goes to the google.nl homepage. The Wikipedia, Amazon and IMDb buttons searches for site:wikipedia.org, site:amazon.com or site:imdb.com on google.nl.

When something is entered in the "Sortname*" field:
The google button searches for the entry on google.nl, ignoring browser preferred google site.
The other buttons search in the same way as above, but with the entry added to the search string. Still on google.nl instead of on respective site.

As a contrast, the Google and Wikipedia search buttons on the "(Re)move song" page/popup works as expected and searches on the browser preferred google site or on English Wikipedia.

Best regards,
