Unable to donate due to website error

On your Donate to Adblock Plus page, the "Pay with Paypal" button incorrectly tries to take me to the insecure page http://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr (note HTTP not HTTPS).

The Paypal website displays the error message:

Access Denied
You don't have permission to access "http://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" on this server.
Reference #18.cc14e8ac.1649358421.a333443

I bet you're losing out on revenue due to this coding error on your website.
Thanks for a great product. Let me know when this is fixed and I'll try again.

This appears to be a problem on PayPal's end, because we checked and I can confirm that we're only using HTTPS links. Therefore we'd suggest trying again later, in case it's just a temporary problem.

If you're using a VPN, you could try accessing it using a different IP or without the VPN, because PayPal may block payments from certain countries.
