    Hey, I followed your guide but unfortunately, it still won’t work. I don’t understand what’s wrong. It was fine 3 days ago and I could open Spotify on Safari with no problem. What’s weirder is that I can open in on other browsers without any issues. It’s only Safari that’s acting up. Do you have any additional tips, maybe?
