I don't use it much, but ever since installing Lion, I can't launch Steam to play games I have (like Portal).  All that happens is the icon keeps bouncing in the dock.  Eventually it will stop, but I never got the Steam menu bar or anything.


I read someplace about running the update after launching Steam, butsince Steam never really runs, I can't do that.

    I'm having the exact same problem and Steam has not responded to my requests for help.  Can anyone suggest a fix?  I'd really like to play Civ V again sometime!

    I have the same issue. Steam will not open.Uninstalled and reloaded but no good. Cannot even open the trash to get the old steam back!

    Ok things are looking up slightly.  Unistalled and had to reboot a couple of times to get the dl app to start. Seems to be ok for now apart from the game crashing. Thanks for the tip
