TF2 Often Freezes, Sometimes Causing Steam to Crash (TF2 on Mac)
It's been a few days since the "Mecha Update" came for Team Fortress 2. Ever since that update came, however, TF2 often freezes, which sometimes leads to the Steam app crashing. Does anyone know how to stop Steam from crashing or to stop TF2 from freezing?
Also, I should say that waiting for TF2 to unfreeze doesn't work for me.

Yep, every since the christmas holiday update, steam and/or tf2 crashes anywhere from 2 minutes to half an hour of game play before, boom it crashes.

Everything has to be re-verified, takes a good 10-15 minutes, everything checks out fine, then it crashes again.

This has been happening since before Christmas for me.

OSX 10.5.8

I've found a fix: once the Steam app is open, find the "Preferences" box. Once you're in the Preferences box, change your "favorite window" to "library," then click "Ok." This worked for me, and I hope it'll work for you.

When you mean "Preferences" box, do you mean system preferences? And if you are, how do you find this, how do you find this "favorite window" option on iMacs with Lion?
