I’ve been encountering this issue both on my desktop and laptop. The first time I saw it, Firefox had stopped working properly after an update through
The issue was minor, as clicking on the menu icon or other buttons which open menus would not work. I solved this by refreshing Firefox. I assume Spotify’s issue is related because AFAIK, Spotify is built on a browser?
In any case, while I can recover my browser easily, Spotify currently cannot play any sound, but does not report any errors running in a terminal. Reinstalling the package also did not help.
I’d like to either figure out what is causing this, or a way of recovering Spotify.
Edit for anyone coming across this in the future: My issue turns out to have had nothing to do with the issue I was encountering with Firefox, it looks to have just been a simple
pulseaudio issue I could fix as according to the solution
