My Question or Issue

When opening a shared link to a song or playlist. The desktop client will open another Spotify session instead of the currently open session. After a while, the second window will fail to open and show "Something went wrong".

Steps to reproduce
1) Open Spotify and copy the share link to any song.

2) Open a terminal and type `xdg-open` but dont press enter.

3) Now paste the URL from step 1 inside quotes, but replace `https://` with `spotify://` and run the command.
  *) Ex: `xdg-open "spotify://open.spotify.com/track/4sAn9xKA6VlpXHdpNtsyHl"`
