ebay, paypal & tablets

Odd problem which I would appreciate advice on.
My ebay and paypal accounts are linked.
Using a desktop computer running linux & firefox no problem, buy something on ebay and pay using paypal job done.
However using a Samsung tablet I am having problems doing the same thing, logging into ebay and purchasing something I get the option of paying by paypal which takes me to the login page with my email address already showing and my password which shows as dots for security reasons, on selecting pay now I am took back to a ebay page asking me to log into the paypal account but doing this simply gets me to the login page and then back to ebay asking me to log into paypal.
I contacted ebay who said this is a problem for paypal speak to them.
Contacted Paypal who said you need to speak with Samsung and they can advise you as it's possibly a security issue.
Spoke to Samsung who said it was a Paypal issue.
Ever felt you were going in circles with something.
I can access my paypal account direct using a tablet so clearly nothing is blocking access to the account.
This is not a major problem but simply means I have to use a desktop when buying and paying for things when using ebay & paypal.
So anyone any ideas please ?
