Calibre book lookup on Goodreads

Hello.
I revamped my Calibre install a while back and noticed I can't seem to find how to right click on a book and be able to have it open the book info page on Goodreads. I thought this might have been functionality from a plugin, but I checked the two Goodreads plugins listed and neither seems to offer this option. Am I missing a configuration somewhere?

Thanks!

I have the "Goodreads" plugin installed (as opposed to "Goodreads Sync") and if I right click on the book there's a "Goodreads" menu for the plugin. Under that there's a "Linked book" menu and from there there's a "View linked book" item which opens the Goodreads page for that book in a browser.

That's exactly what I was looking for. It was greyed out as I had a bunch of new books I needed to link for this to work.

Thanks!

For this to work, the Goodreads identifier must have already been set. And the book details pane usually shows the identifiers and clicking "Goodreads" will open the page.
