Earlier today I installed Steam in PlayOnLinux on the latest daily build of Ubuntu 18.04. Everything seems to work fine except for the web browser. Whenever I try to visit any site with it (the store page, my profile, etc.) it just shows a black screen. I know it's not an internet connection issue because I can still download games from my library without any issues. I figured I might be missing a package so I googled what engine the Steam browser uses but found no results. If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.

PlayOnLinux has very poor support. Updates to the install script's are incredibly infrequent. I'd highly recommended avoiding this badly maintained Wine front-end. Lutris is a far better option - if you feel you have to use a front-end for Wine.

See: WineHQ AppDB: Game Tools / Steam [1]

Running Steam, with CEF sandboxing disabled, is highly recommended - see [1].
As is the suggested overrides to run Steam with Windows XP compatibility - see [1].
