It is currently possible to use TB before and while downloading update. It is a grave security risk in case of 1-days.

It is proposed to disallow navigation in the following cases:
1 update is available, containing vulnerabilities fixes, but not yet installed. In this case update downloading progress should be displayed and the list of vulnerabilities fixed in the update.
2 It is unknown whether update is available.

In all cases the message must contain some text explaining why it is important to wait until the update process is finished.
