Web Player Stuck on Advertisement

For several days now, the web player has been stuck on a JC Penny ad. The ad will not play, and when I click to play music nothing happens. Refreshing the page and clearing cookies does nothing. I'm out of ideas. I run the web player on Ubuntu linux with Firefox.

 

Thanks in advance for the help! I've attached a screenshot of the web player.

Re: Web Player Stuck on Advertisement

Does opening in a private browsing window make any difference? 

Do you have flash installed in firefox?

Yes, I have flash. The private browser idea seems to be working. Thank you!

Re: Web Player Stuck on Advertisement

Hi,

 

The web player has been stuck on an Oakland University ad for a while now. The previews play but when I click to hear the full song it won't play. The ad won't play. I've refreshed in every way I can think of. I'm using Windows8 on Chrome on my pc.

 

Okay so I tried using an incognito window and the web player worked again. This still doesn't really solve the issue for me since I use tabs quite a bit to easily navigate my work flow. If I have to open spotify in a private window I might as well just use the desktop version since the level of inconvenience is the same. It isn't that bad, but still jarring to my work flow style. How can I fix spotify webplayer so it works in tabs again?

Hi. Try clearing out any spotify cookies and see if that helps.

@braves12 does launching the web player in a private window or incognito mode make any difference?
