Bug when using Firefox AutoFill with PayPal

I've discovered a bug in the interaction of Firefox and PayPal. PayPal claims it's a Firefox problem.

I've run into this making donations to two different non-profits.

1) I fill in the information on the non-profit website and click the Donate via PayPal button. 2) That brings me to a form where I choose how to pay (see PayPal1.JPG). I choose "Donate with a Debit or Credit Card." 3) I start filling in data. At some points, Firefox's Autofill pops up, as in PayPal2.JPG. Note that as I move through the Autofill list, the Country/Region dropdown switches to Panama. None of my addresses have Panama as the country. 4) When I make a selection from the Autofill list, I get a "processing" icon and when it's done, the data I've entered has been removed and the Country/Region is set to "Panama" (see PayPal3.JPG) and a cannot change it back to United states. At that point, I have to close the tab and start over and remember not to use Autofill.

As I said, PayPal says it's not their bug, and that it doesn't happen in other browsers. (I haven't tried.)
