Ebay checkout with Paypal not working only in Firefox

I have always used ebay and paypal with firefox until last week when it changed during checkout having purchased an item

It allows me to select payment method of paypal then asks for user name and password, then it re-directs me to a screen which asks if I want to save the details for future use, I select not now and it goes off via another link to paypal and then puts up a blank text free screen with a green circle spinner in it and theire it remains forever ????????????

If I log in to paypal seperately all works fine as does checking out in the exact same way in internet explorer so it looks like a broken or blocked link within firefox ?

I have spoken to Paypal who inform me that it is a Firefox issue..................

Can anyone help please ?

Many site issues can be caused by corrupt cookies or cache.

Warning ! ! This will log you out of sites you're logged in to. You may also lose any settings for that website.

If there is still a problem, Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link} by holding down the <Shift> (Mac=Options) key, and then starting Firefox.

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Did this help?

While you are in safe mode;

Try disabling graphics hardware acceleration in Firefox. Since this feature was added to Firefox it has gradually improved but there are still a few glitches.
