Big picture mode is crashing on start up. is anyone else having this problem. I use a macbook pro 15” display running a dual 2.53 Ghz processor, with a 256mb 9400 Nvidia card. When it does fully load to my library then it crashes faster then I can switch it out of big picture mode.

I'd have to look to see where it keeps preferences for that, but I'm sure moving that prefs file out will allow steam to launch in default mode (non-big-picture). Just gotta find where that file is...

So I’ve uninstalled Steam then reinstalled it. Now I’m back into the default viewing mode and everything appears to be working untill I go to load Big Picture Mode. Then the problem repeats it self. Now I’ve emailed Steam and I’m waiting for a response. Of course though if anyone has solved a problem similar to this please chime in. Without Big Picture Mode then my steam controller is useless.
