[Fixed] Programs not found (Links not working on site)

I've tried to download almost every program (see Note 1, bellow) directly from site (https://portableapps.com/apps), to test all links, and I've found some links not working.

These programs return a "404 Not Found" error, when downloading from their pages:

Notes:

  1. Tick5 and WAtomic can be installed through "Apps", "Get More Apps..." menu in Platform.
  2. Instantbird, Thunderbird Legacy 52, Sage and Sunbird doesn't appear in "Apps", "Get More Apps..." menu in Platform, therefore they can't be installed at all (and maybe it's ok, I'm just telling what I've discovered).
  3. Mozilla Firefox and Mozilla Thunderbird versions: I've tried to download only EN and PT_BR localizations. No other language were tested.
  4. Some programs are downloaded through a github page (DSpeech, IObit Unlocker, Monero, TinyTask and WhyNotWin11). Are the false positives in Google Safe Browsing issue still happening?
  5. TidyTabs and TweetDeck pages are still on site, despite these programs aren't available. Shouldn't their page be removed?
  6. Mozilla Thunderbird appears in Internet and Office categories on site, but only in Internet category in Platform Install Menu.

Fixed

The above-mentioned issues should be fixed and all the apps should be available for download from the site.

Sage has been removed from the app directory on site. The actual page for it now links to Sage Like. It is not supposed to be available in the platform's app store.

The older and discontinued apps you mentioned are not supposed to be in the platform's app store, just more recent legacy versions.

The programs on the github page will remain there. Any app with two many or specifically suspicious false positives will be handled similarly due to the overzealousness of Google Safe Browsing.

TidyTabs and TweetDeck will remain as is and are there on purpose.

Apps can only appear in a single category in the PA.c Platform.

Thanks for letting me know about the broken downloads.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
