I have upgraded to Lion & my Mac App Store won't show the purchased tab. I can click and click and click on it & it won't load. Is there any way to fix this to where it will load? All of the other tabs load just fine.

If you're trying to resume a download you should be able to do it by finding the icon in Launchpad and clicking on it.

You can add me to this growing list... The twitter app, for example, has no idea I've already 'purchased' it

My Purchased tab isn't showing, either.

Weird, because my Updates tab wasn't showing earlier today, but now it is showing and my Purchased tab isn't...

Same issue here. I'm trying to resume a download of XCode but I can't seem to do so since the Purchased tab does not load
Exact same thing just happened to me. I can't view any of purchased apps, and clicking on the Purchased tab does nothing. Also, my Xcode download appears to be in a perpetual state of stuck.

What did the guy (above) mean about moving the tabs around? I can't find any way to do that.

You don't need to retrieve it from the purchased tab...if you need to install it from SL and you already bought it, just go to lion in the app store (its on the front page) and instead of purchase the button will say install....use that...it will install and not charge you again.

Only if the download did not complete (can anyone confirm this?). For those who want to download the whole thing again (e.g. for another mac) have to wait until the Purchased Tab is back up and running.

That's exactly what I was doing when the issue began! I don't remember pausing downloads to cause this issue ever before.

I'm having the same problem. I ordered a new Air yesterday and it shipped today, so I was checking to see if Lion shows up as a purchased App so I can install it on my iMac. I wonder if that has anything to do with it.
