I'm new to this list, thank you all for your work and efforts; I've been using the TorBrowser for a while now, yesterday I tried to update it (tor-browser-2.3.25-2_en-US.exe), but, the "There is a security update...." keeps showing up, I already downloaded it twice, and couldn't fix it. Is there something I can do? Or another download site?

Thanks in advance,


Did you extract the latest TBB into a new location or over the top of old one?

Either way, when you're sure the version you're using is x.x.x, & if you look in about:config for an entry that lists the tor browser version (& it's different), that's where it's getting the version #, & why it's still prompting for an update. That may not be YOUR case, but it can happen if you copy part / all of the old pref.js file into a new version profile. Then it copies over the old version #. There could be other reasons.

If you did something like that & you KNOW you're using the latest version, you can either try extracting it again, or just change the about:config value.
