Can't use paypal

When I attempt to make a payment using PayPal from within Firefox, it opens the PayPal popup, I insert my PayPal login email address, and then the PayPal window goes blank. If I move the PayPal window I see a message from PayPal asking if I'm having trouble opening their window, and suggesting I click 'Continue'. After doing this a couple of times, I get dumped back to where I was, on the merchant website offering me ways of paying, including of course PayPal. I've tried searching through past posts, but they all refer to what's obviously a previous version of FireFox - eg suggesting I click on an Advanced tab that isn't there

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

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?

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.

I have always had problems with Firefox not finding my printer so I just use another browser now. Now when buying on line via paypal Firefox doesn't even open the paypal window, just a blank page with paypay at the bottom left hand side, if I use this to open PP it just takes me to the usual sign in page then I am not still connected to the web page I am buying from, so again I now use a different browser, is there any reason to stay with Firefox if it causes these problems, I am not techy so some of the solvers given are just too complicated to even start trying, I think the browser should be easy to use or what is the point. Anyones views appreciated.
