Opening browser context menu instead of Spotify context menu in Spotify Web

Opening browser context menu instead of Spotify context menu in Spotify Web







Operating System

Windows 10 (Web)

My Question or Issue

First of all, why isn't there a section for Web version of Spotify in the community forums?

Is there a way to open browser context menu by right click instead of the one of Spotify? Spotify behaves as if it's separate from the browser, as it's on its own. I use Firefox and I want to open some albums in new browser tabs.

Hey @user-removed 


Opening albums as separate tabs is quite a cool idea and in (Firefox) browser it would be doable by doing a ctrl + left-click on an album. The only downside is that the existing tab will also load the same album you just clicked on.


I believe the tabs for the web player act like that mainly because there is no such feature on the desktop client, at least not that I'm aware of.


Hope this helps, have a nice day 🙂

Actually, I don't want Spotify context menu overriding Firefox context menu when right-clicking at all.

Please see the attached pictures.

Hey @user-removed,

Thanks for the reply.


That is currently not possible. Spotify context menu will be opened if you right-click on an item and no menu would be opened at all, if you click on empty space within the app. This is because the Spotify Web player is treated as a service Client by the browser.
