I'm not able to answer a question on Stack Overflow because the Human Verification page is showing up but without any CAPTCHA. I found many questions relating this but without a solution that worked for me. I guess this has something to do with my No-Script settings (Firefox plug-in). I selected "Temporarily allow all this page" several times but without success. I don't know of any proxy related restrictions on my internet connection but anyhow I there were some, I couldn't change them. Does this mean I can't pass the "Human verification"?

Human Verification - Are you a human being?

Can you post screenshot of what you see? Can you temporarily disable the plugin or try from different browser? – Shadow Wizard Aug 27 '12 at 13:59
The same in here, usually it works (the big checkbox is loaded), but now I've refreshed and re-tried few times and no luck. Could be just my connection or something. – kenorb Sep 30 at 16:24

I don't know exactly how NoScript works, but there might be some setting for blocking/allowing third-party scripts. The reCAPTCHA script gets loaded from http://www.google.com/recaptcha/....

Also, if you disable JavaScript altogether (in Firefox, not NoScript), the <noscript> version of the Captcha page should get displayed, which doesn't require JavaScript at all.

In the beginning, I tried it with Java Script completely disabled. Then, I also allowed all from google.com. – ulmo Aug 27 '12 at 13:28
Did you disable JavaScript in NoScript or in Firefox itself? I think it makes a difference. Also, try visiting google.com/recaptcha/api/…. If you can't see the image there either, your problem isn't related to JavaScript. – Dennis Aug 27 '12 at 13:32
JavaScript is enabled in Firefox settings. The CAPTCHA on google.com/recaptcha/api/… shows up. – ulmo Aug 27 '12 at 13:35
Then try disabling it in Firefox. That should display the <noscript> version. – Dennis Aug 27 '12 at 13:36
Disabling NoScript and disabling JavaScript in Firefox settings worked. A related but different problem is that without JavaScript, I can't comment. ;) Thank you! – ulmo Aug 27 '12 at 13:43
Well, in any case, this is a workaround. With NoScript disabled and JavaScript enabled, it should work. – Dennis Aug 27 '12 at 13:45
Yes, and it also works with disabled JavaScript. But I consider the fact that my browser behaves different with JavaScript disabled via Firefox settings compared to JavaScript disabled via NoScript as a bug (or at least unexpected behavior) of NoScript and not Stack Overflow. – ulmo Aug 27 '12 at 13:54
