Smile [Solution] Steam needs to be online mode to update but was set to offline mode

This is how to fix the problem on OS X Lion.
I do not know why it occurs but I do know how to fix it, I suffered without steam for a month and a half before finding the solution.


1.With finder selected, in the menu bar select Go/Go to folder... or press shift-command-g.

2.In the box that opens, paste this: "~/Library/Application Support/Steam"

3.Open steam, steam will either open immediately or take a few moments to update. (Steam may also open in offline mode, if this happens simply go to account, then select 'Go Online'.

4. Profit!!!

I'm not quite following.

You opened Finder, looked at the Steam directory inside of ~/Lib/AppSup. Got ya so far.

Give me a little more context on 'open steam'. Are you saying that window had a steam icon in it? Or you independently opened steam and for some reason having that finder window opened made it work?

If it's the first item - do you have any idea why there is a 'steam' in your lib/appsup/steam folder? That's not quite normal.
