I've got a mid-2011 MacBook Air that I've never had any problems running the Steam client on, or even playing various games on. Beginning this week, the app has started to crash multiple times a day. I can't narrow down what exactly is causing this...it has crashed when the computer is idling, when I'm chatting with someone, browsing the store...it seems random. Sometimes I can't go five minutes without a crash, and other times (like now) I can have Steam running for hours, use it as normal, and no crashes.
I deleted the app and reinstalled it and the problem is still happening. Opted back out of any betas just in case, but that didn't help. Searching through the web and the Steam forums was of no help, there are some general crash reports but nothing specific that I can find. As far as the machine itself goes, there are no other issues with it that I know of and I'm not running anything new compared to last week, and as far as I know there haven't been any major updates that could be causing a conflict.
Does anyone have any experience with the Steam app for Mac crashing like this, or how I may be able to fix it? Thanks!
