Maybe I'm so bad at computer-ing that I should just give up on this old lampshade iMac, but I hate to let go of well-built machines (incl. cars). I hadn't used this computer for a couple years until a month ago, and today it starts the pinwheel every time I open Outlook email, so I went looking for a TFF update.
It is the 7450 version or whatever running 45.6.0, but when I click on new version download on your website, it just sits there, saying "your download will begin shortly", for more than an hour.
I can't even make sense of all the technobabble in the FAQs...

    Don't give up on that beautiful Mac.

    Sourceforge.com, where we host our downloads, is a bit flimsy or cumbersome sometimes, to say it nicely. If your download doesn't start, disable any adblockers or script blockers (Adblock, uBock, NoScript…) that might prevent you from consenting to cookies and/or that prevent the countdown at 'Your download will start shortly…' to count downwards. If that doesn't help, click on 'Problems downloading' and simply chose 'direct link', this usually works.

    Wow, thanks, I got it!
    I'm always amazed when after my bumbling around I get something to work.
    All I found was a "block pop-ups" to un-check, and after that, when I hit the direct link to download, it did.
    thank you, Chris!
