My Question or Issue
Lately, in the Windows desktop client, I have had massive issues with the performance after using the search Filter within one of my huge playlists.
As an example, I have one playlist with 7200+ tracks in it. If I press Ctrl+F to do a general search in it. and enter some keyword to search on, it takes many seconds for it to even perform the keyword search in the playlist. This wasn't the case some time back; every search I did in my huge playlists yielded immediate results.
Even worse, after I am hit with the slow search here, it affects the rest of my desktop client usage until I close down Spotify. It takes ages adding new tracks to this playlist, every click in the menus (right-click menu) is laggy, and even the playback of my songs becomes slower. I can usually skip within a song without any delay whatsoever, but after hitting this "bug", it can take 3-4 seconds before the song resumes playing.
These issues to me feels like there's a bad memory leak in the Windows desktop client nowadays after performing the search. Anyone else have experienced the same? Any kind of official response would be great.
