    • Fixed the client sometimes forgetting a game exists after a content update on Steam

    • Workaround for a Firefox 3.5 bug where they activate random windows after minimizing which would confuse the state of some Steam windows
    • Fixed internet tab in the in-Steam ServerBrowser not updating sorting as more servers are refreshed
    • Fixed the first time launch "Installing ..." dialog which is shown while installing things like DirectX for a game taking too much CPU and making the install take a long time

    • Fixed Change User menu option not logging you out correctly
    • Fixed one case of downloads getting stuck
    • Fixed a potential crash in D3D8 games switching between windowed and full screen caused by the in-game overlay
