When I get a captcha on Stack Overflow, I don't see the image or the input box with Firefox.
I originally had the "HTTPS Anywhere" extension installed but still have the same issue when it's disabled (This caused issues previously when Google's SSL certs were expired for an old domain IIRC).
The screenshot was taken after the page had been open for more than 3 minutes, and I'm not sure why the GETs are still running. The request popup visible in Firebug is for "GET challenge?k=...."
When browsing to the same captcha page in IE, there are no issues.
I'm aware this could be an issue with my Firefox configuration, as opposed to the site, but would appreciate it if someone could verify if it's just me, and suggest a fix.
- While visiting the Recaptcha site, I can see a Captcha with no problems
- If I right-click the problem URLs in FF and Open in new tab, the pages load fine.
- From the fact that FB omits IP Addresses for the problem ones, I assume that it's not even opening a connection (nor perhaps performing a DNS lookup)
- Other sites that use Recaptcha seem to work fine (I picked 3 at random from Google)
