I've found an uncaught TypeError Exception, which segfaults Spotify after clicking on a music title in the

Activity Feed


$ uname -a

[OUT] Linux spawn 3.2.0-0.bpo.1-686-pae #1 SMP Sat Feb 11 14:57:20 UTC 2012 i686 GNU/Linux

I use the debian based CrunchBang Linux.


Not such a great long time ago...


I started spotify and waited until the the application was ready (logged in etc.).

Than I clicked on a friends music link (activity feed) and spotify crashed. I started

spotify in my terminal emulator and reproduced the Error. This is what I got:

19:48:52.768 I [index.html:166 ] Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'innerHTML' of undefined

[1] 11276 segmentation fault (core dumped) spotify
spotify 5,41s user 0,60s system 72% cpu 8,298 total




I hope this was helpful for you 🙂 Continue your great work!

Hi, and welcome to the community!


Thanks for reporting!

As I don't use linux, I can't attempt to reproduce it, but I'll be sure to escalate it over to the staff so it can be tested out for you, and if necessary, fixed.

Just noticed Anthony's post in the super user area. 

This was reported when the new update came out on the release notes topic (although I can't find the link) but I am certain a member of the team responded to say it was a known issue.
