Now the only thing left is changing the hosts file but I still get problems users such as @butterfuzz have, where certain songs won't play or i cannot add songs to my list. I installed Spotify with snap on my machine and disabling updates seems to be impossible, so I don't believe rolling back to an older version would work.

That being said Spotify's changed their TOS to ban people using adblockers starting March. That being said Spotify's changed their TOS to ban people using adblockers starting March. For now I believe to solve the problem temporarily is comment to load new songs and playlist and uncomment after. If you believe that spotify will ban you, unfortunatly, I recommend one backup of your playlist [https://soundiiz.com/tutorial/spotify-to-deezer](Link to soundiiz) You can upload your songs in deezer, and after create one new accont in spotify making the inverse process (If we found some way to block this ads sucefully) Linux user here.

If there's a chance someone downloaded via the PPA and still has an older version... I'm going to grab a few more older versions just in case that changes...

When I try to install the normal Spotify desktop program (not the one from the Microsoft store) it will automatically change (?

I turned back on, got to the radio and opened one of the radio stations and spotify indicates that it cannot be started.Else, can anyone put a link to download the last version of spotify that fully worked with the hosts file blocking list?
