With the latest version of Steam, the store browser is not working (it stays stuck on the wait cursor). If I load up a bottle with an older version of steam the browser works. However, after Steam updates itself, the browser no longer works. Any work around for this? I am on Linux Mint 17.2.

These pages broke after the Oct 7 Steam update. As I understand it, Steam started using a full sandbox mode for their in-app web pages that Crossover & Wine can't handle and that's causing the trouble. It's looking to be a really hard problem, so no timeframe right now. In the meantime write us a ticket https://www.codeweavers.com/about/contact-us and ask to be added to Bug 13322 so you're notified when it's fixed.
I don't think you can install and older Steam, the client automatically patches to current when it's installed and even if you don't specifically restart Steam when it says there's an update it'll still apply it the next time you launch.
This is now fixed in Crossover Mac & Linux 14.1.11 which we released on Thursday October 29. You can login to your codeweavers.com account https://www.codeweavers.com/account/downloads to get Crossover Linux 14.1.11 and then install that to update your binaries.
yo guys so i have the exact same problem but i just dont understand
how to fix it on mac - Should i reinstall CrossOver? What will
happen to my bottles?
You should be able to install the new version of Crossover on top of the old version; no need to uninstall. Either way, I believe your bottles will remain intact. If you want to be extra safe, you could use the "Export Bottle to Archive" option to make a backup copy of your bottles before you do the upgrade.
Please Note: This Forum is for non-application specific questions relating to installation/configuration of CrossOver. All application-specific posts to this Forum will be moved to their appropriate Compatibility Center Forum.
CrossOver Forums: the place to discuss running Windows applications on Mac and Linux
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
