How about running No Script? It blocks auto-redirects too.
Anything that will block the browser from running/handling "steam://" will stop this attack vector. It won't fix the exploits in Steam or the games, but it will keep the browser from being used as a means to deliver an attack.

So, yes, if you can add "steam://*" to noscript's block list, that should do it.
