    Favorites issue in 7.9.1

    1. If I save an album as a favourite using the Radio UI or Orange Squeeze then if try to delete this favourite using the context menu the delete option is not there, only "Save to favourites". If I navigate to the album in my library and open the context menu " Delete favourite " appears.

    2. If I save "The Ultimate Collection" by the Who as a favourite what actually gets saved to favourites is "The Ultimate Collection" by Sade. If I navigate to both of those albums in my library then the option to delete favourite is present in the context menu for both albums.

    Does this only happen with albums? What's your behaviour setting in
    Advanced/Favorites?

    That's nothing new, but caused by the way album (or artist fwiw)
    favorites are stored: as they don't have any persistent key, it's
    basically a text search for that album name. If you happen to have to
    albums of the same name, then this can happen. It's not a bug, it's a
    design flaw...

    Yes albums only I think. I seem to have drill down to content selected in advanced-favourites , which I assume is default since I have never even looked there.

    I guess I have never chosen a title that exists more than once since most of my favourites are radio stations. Does this design flaw only affect albums or also tracks?

    Artists likely as well. But not tracks: we're using the file's URL for
    the tracks.

    If I change the "advanced - favourites" setting to just play rather than drill down then "delete favourite" returns to the context menu as required.

    With the default setting of "drill down" for "Advanced - favourites" there is no "delete favourite" option in the context menu. "Save to favourites" appears instead. Is this a bug?
