Music Stops When Listening to Albums + Playlists

I have a similar problem, but don't even get to hear one song.  When I click on a station, I have no problems, but when I click on an album, I have to watch a video, then the album shows as playing, the slider moves in real-time, but there is no audio.

It was doing it in Chrome so I switched to Edge. I dumped the cookies and that seems to have resolved it.

Thanks for the update, @smgowing. Sounds like you were able to get back to listening. Feel free to let me know if anything else pops up. 👍

Hi, sorry for not replying sooner.  I've eliminated my router and modem setup, here's why:  I have the ability to open a vpn link to my computer at work and operate it remotely.  Streaming Pandora from there (through the VPN) I have no issues BUT there is an occasional very noticable tiny hiccup in the stream that makes me think something like my local computer firewall is trying to block the link, but the vpn prevents it from doing so?  I'm still working through the Chrome and Firefox troubleshooting, but honestly, I have more trouble with those browsers at work, and Pandora always works like a charm there.  

I have NO error messages, I listen to stations and playlists, albums.  Anything that requires an autoplay feature for certain.  I did find some settings in Edge that seem to affect autoplay in tabs (the Pandora app uses Edge, yes?)  I tweaked those, but it still stopped outputting sound last night in the app (WHILE playing).  Only refresh or selecting another song gets it going again (maybe.)

I'm going to try turning off the firewall next and see what happens...

Ok, update -- I just realized that it only stops playing while I am listening to playlists and albums, aka the music is preselected.  If I play a station where Pandora picks the music for me on Discovery for example, it doesn't stop playing!  How strange!  I wonder what affects that.  More research definitely needed.  Turning off the firewall did not help, btw.

Same problem. Windows with any browser. No fix. It's a Pandora problem.

It has nothing to do with my devices...In fact, a small window appears and a statement, "Sorry, we are having a problem...we will resume soon." But it doesn't! I just paid for another month of premium service but this problem is ongoing and it looks like you are NEVER going to fix it!

I have several Playlist and Stations...it happens on every single one! It all just stops! This has been going on for YEARS!
