matplotlib install on mac osx 10.6.8

and I got a Decompression Failed message in the Downloads window.
I checked my Safari settings, and

Very odd. I'm on MacOS X 10.6.8 and I am able to download it and

You might try reinstalling your operating system from a combo updater,
or try BetterZip (which I own so I can easily make .zip and .tgz files
with no Mac-specific content).
