My suggestions as a no-tech user:
Perhaps the Warning should be put on top of the page, before the download links - sometimes people don't go further than the download links.
Also, might I suggest NoScript to be used in conjunction with QuickJava? And please add a line reminding users to reload the page if they use QuickJava. NoScript reloads automatically but not QuickJava.
About the evil exit nodes, these extensions might help detect false pages: HostIP.Geolocation plugin, netcrafttoolbar, FormFox, and Shazou. FormFox is somewhat paranoid and not always accurate, but it serves as a reminder of thinking before clicking "submit".
About mail client: I configure my Thunderbird 995 and 465, same server name for pop and smtp, with Torbutton. So far I have had no problem retrieving and sending. There have been mentions in this list
about problems with smtp, so maybe I am missing something. Am I blithely assuming my getting and sending mail through tor and SSL?
About Windows (sorry guys) security, set up a normal user account for browsing, like they do in Linux. Change Administrator to some other moniker and set a password. And disable remote administration if you don't need this enabled.
Voila, my 2centsworth.
