I can't open a Spotify URI from Firefox

I can't open a Spotify URI from Firefox But I can open it from command line using the --uri option. As in, this works fine from the terminal:

spotify --uri="spotify:artist:6OqhFYFJDnBBHas02HopPT"

and whatever Firefox is doing just launches Spotify without navigating to the thing indicated by the URI

Is there, perchance, a simple file edit I can do that will fix this for me?

No, there's no direct analog, but that gave me the right search term to figure out what I was even looking for. Wasn't at all a Firefox problem, sorry about that. And thanks so much for taking the time anyway.

For anyone interested in the future, the solution was to change the file "/var/lib/snapd/desktop/applications/spotify_spotify.desktop" Change the end of line 7, the one starting with "Exec="

from this: /snap/bin/spotify %U

to this: /snap/bin/spotify --uri=%U

Hi patrickmcgorrill, Firefox should be sending that entire URL to the app. The URL works from other browsers but not from Firefox?

Unfortunately, what I know about checking the shell open command in the Windows Registry probably doesn't have a direct analog on Linux, but that is where the command line would be defined. Or its equivalent.
