PayPal reports "Sorry your last action could not be completed"
I use PayPal for all of my eBay purchases, but I've had little success elsewhere.

Many sites offer PayPal along side credit cards during their shopping cart checkout process. But whenever I try the PayPal route, I arrive at a PayPal page that reports "Sorry your last action could not be completed".

When I encountered that error a few minutes ago attempting to check out from MacUpdate Promo, I switched to Firefox 3.6b1, which worked fine.

Has anyone found a way to use PayPal in OmniWeb?

Strange, I've never had any problems with PayPal in OmniWeb. I wonder if cookie or ad-blocking settings could be interfering with the transaction?

No problems here. Then my OmniWeb is running in very out-of-the-box form, which makes me wonder if the previous poster is right, re ad-blocking or some other customised preference you've put in place.

I've disabled ad blocking
Thanks robotank and xiamenese.

My global preference is full ad blocking for all sites. Usually it's obvious when I need to adjust this for specific sites.

I've disabled all blocks for -- don't know why I didn't think of this myself. I'll report back after my next attempt to checkout with PayPal.

Things that don't help are ...
I've made several adjustments. Here are several things that didn't get PayPal working for me:[LIST=1][*]Clear all ad blocking for <>[*]Change browser spoofing to Firefox for Mac[*]Delete all cookies[/LIST]When I use Firefox to check out via PayPal, the first PayPal screen prompts me to log in. That causes me to wonder whether 1Password has a hand in this problem. 1Password does work fine in Firefox.

I'll disable 1Password before my next shopping trip.

I believe you might have to turn off "Block images and other inline content from third-party sites" from the site which uses paypal in its checkout. (If I remember correctly, the checkout process tries to load some code from paypal to let it know about the purchase, but that ad-blocking setting prevents it from reaching paypal so it gets confused when you actually go to checkout.)

You might give that a try and let us know whether it resolves the issue for you!

also allow 3rd party cookies

Third-party Cookies is the key!
Enabling third-party cookies (Security > Cookies > Accept cookies > Only from the current site [off]) at did the trick.

I had already disabled this option at eBay and PayPal, which explains why eBay purchases were working.
