    Is there a fix yet please? As I really need to update some assets.

    Thanks.

    UPDATE: See easy work around below. My comments following here are probably moot now. Thanks all.

    I tried several previous versions and it didn't bring the store back. I believe it to be a recent Mac OS upgrade that is blocking the web plugin because it accesses local resources. I reported it using the bug reporter. For now I am forced to use a PC laptop to download from the store and export the asset. Then import to the mac with a USB stick.

    @MrEsquire Yeah your right, drag the asset store tab so its a window of its own and I can see and use the asset store again ..

    The workaround requires undocking the Asset Store tab. This issue has been introduced by the Sierra update on Macs. It's quite unfortunate and it's not Jnity fault (I guess not because prior to update it worked flawlessly).

    I wonder if Unity will release fixes for all major Unity versions and what's the official stance about this.

    Actually it was working fine in post Sierra builds. It was the recent Mac OS update that brought the issue back up. It is Unity that chooses to use web views in the store panel that access local resources. That's my $.02.

    And the difference between docking and undocking behavior is clearly not Apple's fault.

    You never know what's going on behind the curtains, but I can say I regret upgrading to Sierra. Major slowdown and something that I didn't see since Windows times - system-wide hangs one day and the other.
