Still having this issue. Not being able to use the web app is frustrating.

I don't think this is going to work in Firefox until Spotify takes action. I tried to show tech support ten json request failures coming from *.spotilocal.com:4370 - :4379 . Either they didn't care, or they had already eliminated the spotilocal issue as a root cause.

 

In any case, Flash is probably coming to an end on Linux, so it's best to fix the application. I really appreciate the fact that Spotify is trying their best to support Linux. When the application works, it works very well.

 

Here's what I did to get the App working again.

 

Synaptic Package Manager: search for Spotify: mark it for Complete Removal.

 

Reinstall. Launch. Spotify launches in under one second and I'm logged in, even after un-installing. That's not right. Repeat:

 

Synaptic Package Manager: mark Spotify for Complete Removal.

 

Command line: ps aux | grep spotify

 

Dozens of processes running on an application that has been removed. Kill all spotify processes.

 

Reinstall. Launch. Spotify launches in about two seconds: that feels better. I'm still logged in; but, we'll call that a "feature".

 

Spotify application works perfectly.

 

Close application and run: ps aux | grep spotify

 

About a dozen processes still running on a closed application. Conclusion: Spotify does not shut down well.

 

In a few days the application will probably fail again, and I'll have to kill a bunch of orphaned processes. Still, this is much better than running Flash in my primary web browser. Besides, it's a very nice application when its running.

 

Good luck!
