I fixed it. Here is what I did:
I went to chrome://flags and enabled two options.
New Tab Loading Animation
I restarted my chromebook after this to apply the features, and it somehow fixed it.
Hopes this helps
I wish I could do this. My administrator has chosen to block //flags! I want a real fix from Spotify though. I'm sick of this
Yes me too. Needs a fix : (
Dell Chromebook running Version 78.0.3904.81 (Official Build) beta (64-bit) using chrome. Same symptomes
Enabled smooth scrolling. Don't have the new tab loading animation option. Makes no difference.
Dell Chromebook 13 running Version 78.0.3904.92 (Official Build) beta (64-bit)
Only happens on spotify webplayer. Works OK on Android app.
I thought that changing those flags mentioned by Milez would do nothing, but I tried it out of desperation and it actually worked. Fair play, thank for the fix.
yh the flags worked!
I have the Acer Chromebook 14 and enabled Smooth Scrolling and New TabStrip Animations.
It worked like a charm after it was reset. I assume Google changed something with the recent updates this year, causing a royal mess to all Chrome OS user.
Hopefully people will see this thread and will not have to suffer in silence anymore.
I've tried all the "Solutions" and nothing has changed.
My Chromebook is the Samsung Chromebook 3 and my Chrome version is 78.
@DopeGlitch Have you tried my solution? It is also not neccesary to choose the new tab loading animation or the smooth scrolling option. It can be any of them, though it has to be two.
Hopes this helps.:)
@ChuckBIt does not have to specifically be any of them. Any of the two options you choose on chrome:flags will work. Sorry for not saying it earlier.
