Which browsers/versions are now compatible with this recaptcha robot challenge crap? According to the google site only the very latest versions of the big browsers are supported. One of these days the size of your browser is going to be bigger than your operating system. Mad

Not ye olde trusty ff 25 nic.
Absolutely awful now when one comes across the recaptcha stuff, before you know it, the page has used up 50+meg and still can't login.
Insane number of scripts coming from all over the web.

I think that little Light browser might do it, it certainly will do the odious ryanair site, maybe ff40 odd and probably definitely ff 52/56.

Sorry don't use google chrome but surely that thing will let everyone in.
I made a few spare drop in ff adrv browsers for that purpose, but fortunately, rarely have to come across the stoopid recaptcha stuff.

Damn, download sites like Suprafiles and Cloudyfiles use it. Now I need the latest browsers to download ebooks.

Managed to get the captcha challenge with my old Palemoon browser! All it needed was patience. Firstly got the small I'm no robot captcha block without the challenge (images to solve). Did nothing, after a while the captcha block refreshed and stll nothing, it then refreshed for a second time and BINGO. Got the challenge, verified and got a code to copy and paste in the empty block. Don't know if this will work on other sites. This works even if I'm not logged into my google account.

For old Opera browser. I needed to login to my google account. So I did that, clicked on the captcha block (left-side block) and got the challenge OR when at captcha page, open new tab and log into your google account, refresh the captcha page, you should be logged in without doing the challenge. Smile

Ha, glad you got in nic. Funny I was just around at a mates before.
And didn't he start banging on about the very same thing! He got in eventually as you said with patience.
Must be quite a few people having trouble with the recaptcha thing.

Sometimes, I become confused with reCaptcha. Choosed correct images, but still need to retry again.
I used olf Firefox (33) on my father laptop, but it never have problem with captcha. The problem is I can't pass it hahaha

Pain in the neck and once again Chrome centric.

Complain to any sites using it...point out how they will be losing visitors.
Be a bigger pain than it is.

Funny thing is one place its popped up is a webmail provider for sending emails.
Now forgive me if I am thick but were not ecapchas invented to prevent spammers using contact forms and forums and harvesting emails...so why the hell have one for a site that requires a passworded login??!!

As it happens a simple number on a picture ecapcha works perfectly for our contact forms..... so why the big awkward game to do the same thing? I assume its data harvesting or a means to push someones hardware/software combination.

It also to me compromises security by forcing software and requiring more bundles of unknown javascript.

Protest or be railroaded by corporates. Up thee revolution. Down with socks etc

Smithy, et al, FF27 or newer can handle it. Recaptcha was working fine a few weeks ago most places I have used, but appparently, something got altered.

The front-end of a store may be difficult. Some maybe, some maybe not. And when does the image of a car qualify - the whole car, some of it, only a bumper.....?

I suspect they deliberately make it awkward to up the click count.

Also; sometimes the resolution is poor on these. I pity the people with bad eye site, then again my eyes aren't the greatest.

ah of course clicks = ...well whatever hits gain.

I find any three random squares will do..as long as visitors go through sufficient hoops. After all its not for protecting anyone as dropbox and others claim any more than ssl changes.

Perhaps one should approach google and see if they have any marketing incentive for using them.

Now to file a repetitive strain injury claim for excessive mouse activity...
