    Wine-staging 1.7.53 works and there is no need for wine in our two gaming machines. I am glad to see windows steam store pages working, I do not remember if it worked earlier, beacuse i launch my games from my own launchers. Wine-staging i have used two years now.

    It's correct - it's Chromium (not Chrome) and the newer version introduced by a Steam update added use of the security sandbox which prevented it from working at all in Wine.

    There are two obvious solutions - add --no-sandbox to the helper process to disable sandboxing (which in an option that may not exist much longer, and is an ugly hack IMO), or adding the necessary thunks to support his new behaviour.

    Looks like Wine is going with support for thunks, but CrossOver might be going with the --no-sandbox hack to get a safer solution out the door quicker.

    The patch set is here:

    Uhmmm. Not exactly correct... A Steam update pulled in a newer version of the Chrome runtime that broke web rendering for the (previously fully working) Store and Community tabs.
