Latest TFF with updated Adblock Plus and NoScript addons

Thank you for TFF, it's a life-saver for me in the mountains of the Burmese border, where modern Macs are mere door-stops (no modem).

I've used TFF for years and no prblems ever using PayPal but the last transaction yesterday I could not get the PP pages to load fully.

I deleted caches, restarted, no joy, I eventually had to disable AdblockPlus to make a PP payment, and even then I had to guess what the PP forms were, as they would not fully load.

After a hour of trying I did manage to make the PP payment (confirmed by their email) but it was anything but easy.

I have since tried PP in TFF Safe Mode, and it DID load PP pages properly so it looks like it is an addon interfering.

I cannot find anything specific about PP in your KB, so I'd be grateful if you'd look into it.

Note: I have altered some basics in the about.config file in the distant past, so that may be involved.

PS. I think I answered my own question. I tried posting this topic, but this page didn't load fully either, so I re-started TFF in Safe Mode and could both see the PP pages better, and now post this Support Query, so it looks like I'll have to reset my profile.
(Something I'm loathe to do because of the hassle re-installing my addons.)

But I'll post this as it may help others.
