I had a look at this also and did notice one thing: at least in Firefox, 
the FTP download links (present on the v3.6 page but not used for 3.7) 
don't work anymore. FTP is deprecated in v89 and will be removed 
entirely in v90. Chrome appears to have already turned it off by default.

The FTP download links were a bit of a relic of a past age when dialup 
was the norm and a FTP connection was a little more stable than HTTP, so 
they're not really needed. Accordingly I've removed them (but kept a 
reference to the FTP server for those who want to use it).

Not sure if this was the issue facing Ray but thought it worth mentioning.
