HAVE YOU VERIFIED THAT YOU TRULY HAVE THE UPDATE INSTALLED BY CHECKING YOUR ADD REMOVE. IF IT STILL SHOWS THE OLD VERSION THEN YOU NEED TO DISABLE ALL YOUR ADD-ONS ESPECIALLY NO-SCRIPTS AND COOKIE CONTROLS THEY WILL CORRUPT YOUR DOWN LOAD,OR YOU CAN USE ALLOW THIS PAGE. THEN TRY TO DOWNLOAD AGAIN. IF THAT DOESN'T WORK CHECK YOUR FIREWALL AND YOUR BROWSER IT MAY BE DISABLING THE DOWNLOAD.

I guess you are trying to intimidate the new user by typing in ALL Capital Letters?

Please check that your Caps Lock is not on when you reply.

You have 3.5.3? If so, it shouldn't be insecure. Did you try a rescan?
