Installer won't run

I installed Adblock yesterday, seemed to work fine. I have been running Lion OS, but have been unhappy with that, so today I did a clean-install of Snow-Leopard, knocking my Safari version back to 4.0.4. Tried re-installing Adblock, but the installer won't run. The .safariextz file instead opens in Textedit, just showing me a bunch of nonsense text. This is drag, for I actually opted to pay for the Adblock.

    Hi Eric,

    First, thank you for your payment! AdBlock doesn't really support older versions of Safari. Can you please upgrade to the most recent version and try again, and let us know if you're still running into trouble?
