My Question or Issue
Spotify Web Player dropped support of the last Firefox ESR (60.4.0esr (64-bit))
I'm actually surprised that Spotify dropped support of latest Firefox ESR browser line.
I'd like to get this clarified whether this step is actually necessary.
This is the line I started seeing when goint to spotify web:
To my humble opinion last Firefor ESR release should be always supported.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Firefox ESR has a FAQ, which I'll quote:
Does Mozilla Firefox ESR work with any website?
Generally speaking, yes. However, it should be noted that some web applications including popular SaaS like G Suite and Office 365 only support the latest Firefox release. If your organization is using one of those applications, please consider deploying the latest release instead of ESR to meet the requirements.
It's quite possible the web player is one of such websites that support a later version of Firefox, for technical reasons brought out by the dev response I linked here earlier. 🙂

Have a nice day!
Can you try again now? Firefox ESR 60.4.0 should be able to use the Web Player as long as it has the required module for listening to encrypted content. If this module isn't present only the first ten seconds of every track will be playable and updating to the lastest Firefox version should fix it.
