Thanks for your suggested fix, but this is not working for me. I have downloaded the assetsPanel fix and ollowed all instruction but this did not help. I have also downloaded proxy sever fix you suggested elsewhere but this also did not work.

Kindly help fix this, I am not able to preview on browser and also not able to open the assets panel - curious though, the discover tab work well. It is only the assets tab and download tab that dont open.

I am using Windows 10 latest build

Is there any way to download assets via a webpage? There are quite a few useful assets that I want to download, but seems I can't get this working!! 

Though the Assets panel is loading and all looks good, but the moment I click on Insert, it goes into loading and then nothing happens. I then need to shift to the Discover / Downloads tab and Cancel to close the panel.

I am also having this problem and after following all of these instructions, nothing has changed. I still get the blank "Blank Download" screen and am unable to successfully download new characters.  Is there anything else that can be tried after following these steps and are using the most current version 11.5.1?

I am having this same problem with my work computer.  The Assets Panel works just fine on my home computer.   I think the firewall at work is somehow blocking access.   I tried the fix, but it didn't work.   Thanks for the information.  I don't think the information you gave is the problem.  The problem is the firewall.  It always put a damper on everything.  So glad I have Captivate on my home computer.
