Since updating to the newest version of Spotify, going into fullscreen mode will reset the progress bar to 0:00 (or whatever time you skipped to before going into fullscreen mode).  When exiting fullscreen it returns to showing the correct time on the progress bar.





It's fixed for me after updating to version I'm on a Windows 10 PC with Spotify Premium Family in Sweden.
