Just confirmed myself now seems WordPress bumped a table in my plugin and readjusted things. It should work properly now.

I can confirm that the "Download Source" (https://casualgamer.ca/index.php/download/55/) link found at https://casualgamer.ca/index.php/unofficial-icecat-builds/ is still broken.

Perhaps your cache needs to be cleared because I'm able to access the files via the page link from my laptop, phone, Desktop and soon I'll be able to verify from a work PC. I'll let you know what's up if there's an issue, but as far as I can tell, issue seems to be isolated to your end.

I don't think this is true for the macOS build but the Windows binaries can be cross-compiled under Linux. The only downside I see to that is that it's not signed nor is there an installer generated. So it sounds more like this is just a decision based on time vs GNU philosophy.

Also, to the person that's hosting the unofficial binaries; it looks like your link to the source is broken: https://casualgamer.ca/index.php/download/55/ leads to a "Download does not exist" page.

People wonder why Rubén Rodríguez discontinued Windows and macOS releases for IceCat after version 38.8.0. I asked him to clarify this on https://www.gnu.org/software/gnuzilla/ which he updated immediately:

    "Note that building binary packages for Windows and macOS currently requires non-free software, so we no longer distribute binary releases for those platforms."

Unofficial download links for macOS and Windows are listed in https://directory.fsf.org/wiki/IceCat#tab=Details
