The "Report a bug" link in the beta still links to an older beta topic - http://forums.steampowered.com/forum...d.php?t=946323

Either I'm misunderstanding what this is supposed to do or it isn't working. I'm still getting UAC prompts when launching Bionic Commando.

Out of the thread question: are every one having problems receiving mails from steam? Just bought SF4 and didn't receive confirmation email. It was always lightning fast and now 30 minutes and nothing. Also confirmation email from steam support after making new account isn't coming.

Edit: Just got my e-mails. I guess with much more mail traffic(e-mail verification and codes) patience will be virtue ... maybe in couple weeks all will be normal.

What about "upgrading" your Steam update system to something Google Chrome alike?
http://dev.chromium.org/developers/d...ates-courgette

Their updates are really small and the updating process is very fast.

Fade out animation on window closing is very glitchy when you close Steam with "Games" tab being active. The animation is smooth when you close the window with "Store" or "Community" tab being active.

If you add non-steam game. Choose it's icon and name. Restart Steam and name and icon you've enetered just dissappear

New Beta is STILL not remembering a removed tick mark for the Gift Column on the games tab. About time this long standing bug was fixed.

I'm starting to think that one's never getting fixed.

The "verify email" button in the settings window doesn't work. It clicks but doesn't do anything and it looks out of place.
