Can not purchase and steam crashes when attempting to view games
Using 12.04.2
When clicking on games from the games list,when it tries to open that page steam continually froze. I forced a steam update and now instead of freezing steam now closes/crashes when trying to view games from the games list.I then must restart and re log inI can not view or buy these games with steam on ubuntu
Any suggestions ? Is this a known bug ?

I ran into this yesterday as well, using 12.04.2. I isntalled openSUSE, I'll let you know soon if this is a Steam bug.

Confirmed, it's a Steam bug.

I think it's the media player trying to stream video. Just use a web browser to buy games in the meantime.

Yes i think this was the issue

I have always had a bad flash experience and thus why i started using google chrome and Pepper API (PPAPI) flash which works much much better.

Anyhoo since using a 64 bit machine i realised i wasnt using a 32bit flash
I followed this https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=1493-GHZB-7612
Now although flash framerate is slow as hell at least i can now download/purchase games and steam is no longer crashing .

@gognoscranes
Your solution perfectly solved this problem on my system (Linux Mint14 64bit on AMD based machine).
Thanks.

I had this problem too and I fixed it using Steam Flash fixer. Here: http://steamcommunity.com/app/221410/discussions/0/864958451629025044/

I'm using Ubuntu 13.04 (x86, Pentium D 3GHz, 1GB RAM, hd4650 open driver) on my 2nd PC, and I can't visit the STORE using Steam, when I click on a game flashplayer freezes my PC forcing to ALT+F1 -> "sudo kill STEAM-PID". Other times (also if I'm just in the store homepage) Steam becomes the foreground application and I ,again, have to close it.
Pratically I can not use the STORE tab.

On my 1st PC (I still have Ubuntu 12.10, 64bit, AMD 1055T 2.8GHz, 4GB RAM, ati5870-fglrx) I have no problems with the Steam client (I can't view game-videos because of Flash player, but everything works).

Try to download Flash Player (.tar.gz) "32 bit" for Linux "64 bit". :-)

Now, Flash Player (.tar.gz) "64 bit" will make Store page crash !!

Did you try "sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin:i386" instead? i know this worked for someone else . I cant test since not having 13.04 currently installed

+1 @gognoscranes, but remember to download the 32-bit version of the adobe flash player, even if you're using 64-bit version of Ubuntu 13.04; worked for me. I did not use the script though. I've downloaded the player from Adobe's web site. I have created ~/steam/bin/plugins folder. I have extracted the 32-bit version of libflashplayer.so to the folder created in previous step. It did work for me.

I'm having the same issue, but I'm using a beta of steam. I should try to go back to stable.
