Hi I would suggest uninstalling the version of Spotify you are running and download and install an earlier version of Spotify and see if that helps&nbl

It ain't easy to find an earlier .deb package which doesn't have dependency problems.

It's quite difficult to pass the verification to write here without eyeglasses.

It will not install .... it needs a Debian Jessie package libnspr4-0d_4.12-1+debu8u1_amd64.deb ... and I can not take any changes about breaking up my os right now so I can't test this.
