    1. I go here:
    https://unity3d.com/get-unity/download/archive

    2. I hover over Downloads (Win) >> dropdown to "Accelerator"

    3. Expected: Should download (like it does with any other dropdown)
    Actual: Does nothing.

    Workaround: Seems like it's an insecure connection (http) link to download instead of https (+TLS). If you right click accelerator >> copy link >> you can see http instead of https. Either way, the link itself is also wrong -- I chose Windows, but it's trying to download mac version. So, 2 bugs.

    Mixed Content: The site at 'https://unity3d.com/' was loaded over a secure connection, but the file at 'https://storage.googleapis.com/unit...celerator-v1.0.628+gea3998c-osx-installer.dmg' was redirected through an insecure connection. This file should be served over HTTPS. This download has been blocked. See https://blog.chromium.org/2020/02/protecting-users-from-insecure.html for more details.

    These are 2 really amateur mistakes :p Unity, you guys awake?

    EDIT: Since the win had osx, the osx had windows, again loaded over http instead of https. The real link is here:

    https://collab-accelerator.cloud.un...get_os=windows&download_location=lts-releases


    @ Unity QA:
    1. Change http to https
    2. Swap win<>osx dropdown links.
    3. Let me know where I can send my invoice for all my QA work done for ya. I charge a lot.
