Desktop App - Back button doesn't remember position in playlist

Hey folks,

 

We've received some reports mentioning that after the recent update, the back button on Windows Desktop app doesn't remember position in playlist.

 

 

Hey folks,

 

Thanks for your patience while we looked into this issue.

 

We’re happy to announce that this should now be fixed for everyone - just make sure you're running the latest version of Spotify.

 

If you're still having trouble you can post a new thread in the relevant help board here.

 

Have a good one!

It seems it's a bug or the feature has been removed from Windows version 1.2.17.834.g26ee1129. At least according to this recent thread: https://community.spotify.com/t5/Desktop-Windows/Back-Arrow-App-doesn-t-remember-position-in-playlis...

I'm also running Spotify for Windows(v 1.2.17.834.g26ee1129), been having the same problem with the program not remembering my last place in a playlist, as well as the program resetting the size of my layout, but clearing my host file seemed to work for now!

My Question or Issue
[Desktop] Scroll position not saved when navigating through pages

This seems to be a continuous problem.  After the last update you now cannot return to the last scroll position after going to another page.  It returns instead to the start of the page. This is very infuriating when trying to compile a playlist. 

PLEASE FIX THIS!!!!!!

My Question or Issue

What the title says, if I'm scrolling a playlist and decide to click on the artist/album, when I press the back button I'm brought up to the top of the playlist 

Obviously this is highly inconvenient when the playlist has 1000+ songs and I have to find where I last was before Spotify decided to scroll back to the top

The position is no longer remembered for Discographies and Appears On lists as well, not only in playlists. It worked until the latest update.

This issue is back, please restore this feature

This is happening for me on MacOS (v 1.2.17.834.g26ee1129). On any playlist or artist, if I go to another page and press the back button it will take me to the top of that page. Really frustrating if I'm on a long playlist and it's constantly returning to the top of the list each time.

Yup, issue is back for me too.

Great, I just got the new update, and it's NOT fixed. And guess what, now it's not even working for short playlists anymore! Your engineers prove time and time again that they are an inept bunch that took an amazingly good app, turned it into a mess, and now they're taking a dump on this mess. And it stinks! And what really puzzles me is, do they not use the app themselves? Can they not see how they're making it worse and worse?? Argh, it's sooo frustrating.
