My Question or Issue

As the title indicates, once I have logged into the Spotify app on OSX, it works fine, but must be Force Quit in order to close. If I delete ~Library/Application Support/Spotify folder, I am logged out... I can then open and close the app without logging in without any issues. Once I login again, the app crashes on exit.


What makes this issue even more odd is that I have 2 accounts on my computer: my personal account and a Guest account. The OS remains the same for both. The Guest account does not have this issue, but my personal account does.


"Solutions" I have tried:

  1. Complete uninstall of Spotify (including all ~/ System files) and reinstall of latest version.
  2. Complete uninstall of Spotify and reinstall of older version.
  3. Restart computer.

Please help if you can!

I should also mention that Spotify is at 100% CPU usage while running, even when not playing anything!

Update... I may have resolved the issue. I went into Preferences and disabled all Local files. It appears to be quitting properly!
