Firefox Won't redirect on the PayPal login Page....
If I uncheck [Options] General] "Warn me when websites try to redirect or reload the page", then when I login to paypal I am forwarded to my account normally... However, I like to keep this check. So When I have: [Options] General] "Warn me when websites try to redirect or reload the page" CHECKED and login to PayPal I get STUCK on the spinning animation while the page tries to redirect. NOTE: I am not presented with the "Allow" button to allow the forward while on the PayPal website. I do see the "Allow" button on other sites.... I use to just click the PayPal link on that page that said "Click HERE if this pafe dows not load within 5 seconds" but, PayPal has now removed that link and I am getting Stuck...
So, my question here is: "Why do I not see the "Allow" button on PayPal when the redirect is caught?
Yes I have deleted and cleared everything. This has been happening forever.
Thank you kindly for your participating in a resolution to my question...

I feel your pain OP. PayPal has always had this problem caused by enabling the "Warn me when websites try to redirect or reload the page" option, but it has only recently become a problem for me because they removed the helper link as you mentioned. And disabling that redirection warning is not something I'm willing to do either.
It's a pretty weird problem because I haven't seen any other websites which hide the "allow" button so quickly like PayPal does. It's probably more of a PayPal issue than a Firefox issue, I have no idea why they use such a crappy redirection technique which is not cross-browser compatible.
Retyping paypal.com in the address bar didn't work for me, but when I went back to the bookmarks folder and clicked on Paypal again I got to my account. Thanks for the tip.

What's going on is this: if you turn on the redirection warning, Paypal works in Windows but hangs in Linux. Turn off the warning and Paypal works in both.
This is a Firefox bug. Paypal won't do anything about it because it works in Windows.
I'm afraid you are mistaken. I am the OP and I've been thru it all and trust me it DOES NOT WORK ON WINDOWS. Else, I wouldn't have posted it here and others wouldn't have agreed with the issue. Firefox never presents the button about offering to allow the redirect. That is the whole issue.
Luckily, PayPal has added the "Click Here" link back to the page so we can be own our way. I have already reported it to Firefox.
