Would be nice if you have album selected bu not playing make a hotkey for it o open in last.fm. Path is pretty long in a traditional way and people use that a lot.

Arrow navigation: Now you cant navigate your library left and right if your arrows are already assigned o rewind and ff. Other players let you navigate and arrows change to rewind/ff when youre at the end of the grid.

You might be able to create a custom web link for this.
Preferences > Internet > custom web link
You'd need to figure out the exact syntax, but it should be doable.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.4 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

Go to Prefs/Internet/custom web links.  In a name box enter something like "Last.fm Artist";  in the web-link box, enter "https://www.last.fm/music/<Artist>" (no quotes).  Save.

Now go to Prefs/Hotkeys, and scroll down to the "Web: Open link (#)" with the number that corresponds to the order of your new custom web link in the last section.  Assign a hotkey to it.

Now when a track is hilighted in MusicBee, hit the Last.FM hotkey you made, and your browser will open to the track's artist page in Last.fm.

Tested and working fine with Firefox 92.
