CD Web search doesn't stop loading

Hello,

Thanks for this program. It works fantastic!

There's only one thing that does not work: the web search function. When I add a new item to my CD collection and click the Fetch Information button in the right corner, I'm able to provide query information and click submit. Then it keeps loading. After a long time, the pop-up disappears and nothing happens.

Platform: MacOS Mojave.
GCstar version: 1.7.0.
Used via XQuartz.

How to fix this?
Thanks in advance.

NB. The Musicbrainz and Discogs databases contain the CD I'm searching for.

To investigate this issue, I tried to create VM for running MacOS X. I was able to do that for Catalina. On that OS, the plugin Musicbrainz is working for the latest GCstar version.

For Discogs, we need to get a new API key for GCstar to be able to get responses from that site.

The Gitlab version of GCstar uses a new API and seems to be ok on Catalina.
