Suddenly can't make PayPal payments on eBay using Firefox.

Posted

I have used Firefox for years and have paid many eBay purchases by PayPal. However from yesterday when I go to the eBay payment screen and check the PayPal box it ghosts out the 'Confirm and Pay' button. A little icon of a red circle with a diagonal line appears at the cursor. It works with no problem with Chrome and Edge. Its odd that it has only just started. I have cleared cache without succes.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi, try: 3-bar menu > Options > Privacy & Security, then under Content Blocking, remove all blocks; also under Permissions, deselect any block on Pop-up windows.

Now reload the site. If that works, should you wish, you can make an exception for the site.

If you are using an ad-blocker try disabling it, or turn it off on that site, then reload the page. (3-bar menu > Add-ons > Extensions).

If you have other extensions, try disabling them, or hold down the Shift key when you start Firefox to start in Safe Mode. More - Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode.

I tried the advice in the first paragraph but that did not resolve it. Disabling the Ad Blocker did! Odd as it has been installed for yonks without any problem.

Thank you for your help.

Odder still - when I re-enabled the Ad Blocker PayPal still worked. Must have been a gremlin in the works as all the settings are back as they were and it is now fine.
