- I want to make a purchase of something from a website and am given a number of payment options (Visa, Mastercard, Paypal etc) - if I choose to pay via 'Paypal' I am taken to a Paypal screen to enter my Username and Password. - When I enter my Username and Password my logon attempt is rejected and I'm told it is invalid

However, I AM entering the correct Username and Password. In fact when I go onto Safari and go through the same process, the Username and Password work fine and I'm able to complete my purchase.

How can I make Firefox work the same as Safari?
