My Question or Issue

Spotify web player only plays songs for 9 seconds and then skips to the next. Or, it will rapidly skip songs before playing them. This is occurring on Chrome. I tried to use Firefox but I recieve an error that Firefox is installing components to play audio and video and to try again later. I tried to download the Spotify desktop app and it will not let me login via Facebook (error code 7). I am using my work laptop and am wondering if that has something to do with it as the app on my Android phone works fine. I just don't want to run down my phone battery all day playing music. I would prefer to use the web player.

Hey @lostinmusic89, welcome to the Community :)


As you can't get the desktop client working either, I'd suggest ensuring that your antivirus or firewall are not interfering with Spotify.


I also recommend taking a look at this Spotify Answer. This needs you to have administrator rights.

Note: if you don't see any Spotify entries, try looking for a line that says googletagmanager or googletagservice in its address. If you're unsure whether to remove, just add a # in front of the line and it will be a comment.:)


Let me know how it goes!
