Issue Report: Steam Unresponsive on Discussions screen
Reproducing this issue:
Launch steam , click message box on top right next to where it says "username's Account"
click a discussion topic and it goes to the topic , then click Limited Beta to go back to the main Limited Beta forum and here is where the window is very unresponsive, 10 seconds later it is no longer frozen and you can scroll a little bit down the topics , then it freezes again for another 10 seconds or so , this keeps happenign untill you click a topic or go back to the STORE or LIBRARY.

Here is the paste of the console output , at the bottom (generating new string page) is where It was freezing while I was on the Limited Beta fourm page from inside steam.


My workaround for this is just to sign into steam in a browser and go to the Limited beta forum that way.

Looks like an issue with your window manager (outside of Steam)…

I also have this issue, generally tied to mousing-over things that have the text popup. It seems to freeze until I can get rid of the popup by clicking elsewhere.

I can confirm that this also occurs on my machine.
I never really tried to use the community hub through Steam until now.

@johndrinkwater , ya I saw that too , I am using Unity on ubuntu 12.04 so this is still a valid issue report.

I noticed it says Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "canberra-gtk-module"

I also searched for this error and found

in post #3 they say what package this is in, maybe this helps, maybe not.....
:) didn’t say it was invalid, but sadly most of the problems in that log are reported elsewhere as unrelated. I’d love to know why your discussions view is laggy, as its fine on the same software here. Do other content-heavy pages like community hub and games hub have a similar issue?

Thanks for the info.

@johndrinkwater , Sorry I know you didnt say it was invalid, I was just feeling myself that maybe it wasnt :)

Thanks for the tip , I checked the other content heavy pages ( games hubs , workshop , greenlight and friends pages) and they all work fine ... it is only the discussions page Limited Beta that lags for me.

edit: vash was right, it has something to do with the popup that shows a preview of the post when you mouse over a topic title.

Although I am not having the unresponsive problem, I do find the pop-up EXTREMELY annoying. I would love to know how to disable that feature.

Mine freezes for about 10 seconds each time, but it seems to only happen when my mouse passes over one of the topic titles and causes the pop-up preview to appear.

This bug has been raised already:

It seems to be cause by the "tooltip" pop ups when you mouse over a topic title.

This bug was raised here first. Check the date. I think many people are experiencing this issue since we are seeing so many threads about it.

Fixed here after steam last updated.

Indeed. However, now they cause memory corruptions that cause Steam to crash for me.
