Thumbs down from me. PayPal does not have a particularly good reputation. It's known for freezing funds and shutting down accounts for spurious reasons, and partnering with PayPal would hurt Mozilla's and Firefox's brands. PayPal is also completely closed source and implementing an integration like this would cause a major backlash among people like me who don't want to see Firefox sponsor proprietary services that track their users.

I disagree. Firefox may be internationally useable but Paypal isn't. In my country, Paypal is rarely used. It's even expensive compared to other payment options. I think it's a big risk to bind Firefox to Paypal when not everyone uses Paypal. It will just be a useless feature for non-Paypal users.

I don't want an integrated payment solution into Firefox.

Browser and financial services are two different services and must stay separate. I might even switch to Chrome if that happened, and this says something.
