reCAPTCHA Never Works Right

Postby littlebb87 » Fri, 03 Mar 2017, 21:41

I have tried the latest versions of four different browsers (PM, FF, Edge and Chrome) and I can't get the reCAPTCHA challenge to work correctly on two different websites. It keeps telling me my browser is unsupported. Could someone please try to access these two sites and tell me if you're having problems too? It could be that because I'm on dialup, something isn't fully loading.

Here are the two sites:
https://forums.malwarebytes.com/register/
https://www.000webhost.com/password-reset/user

I can't even send a help request because that requires reCAPTCHA too. Unbelievable! I wanted to register at the Malwarebytes forum because I'm having a problem with their software. I've got a 14 day free trial and by the time I can register an account, the trial period will probably have ended. :x

Got the captcha on your first link - worked fine. Don't see a captcha on the second link.

Make sure no ad/content blocking extensions are blocking them. Can't say if your slow connection is part of the problem. Are you using your ISP's DNS servers or something else?

More than likely the UA. You can try the extension UAControl and use this UA: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux i686; rv:51.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/51.0

Another option is to use the Firefox compatibility mode (I think it's called) in the PM options. Or try and "listen" to the captcha audio option instead of clicking on images.

If you have a bsd or linux UA or javascript OSCPU recaptcha automatically discriminates against you as a bot. Which means you will always be challenged by it and have to do the challenge twice reguardless of if you got the first image search correct. Cloudfare ddos protection does something similiar to those UA's.

Honestly, I have none of those, but Google discriminates against Pale Moon and will require a double solve as well.
I wish people would stop using reCAPTCHA. It's being used as a vessel to promote their own browser (since It'll never be challenged this way)

Grrr... reCAPTCHA is the bane of my existence. :evil: It. just. fails.

Off-topic:
And apparently, the creators of one of my favorite language-learning sites, Duolingo, helped create it, so that's depressing and shocking at the same time. :shock:

Lucky for everyone CAPTCHAs are on their way to being made obsolete soon, at least by Google.

Just had one on on the Humble Store...

12 iterations before it would let me in :-(

I'm gonna have a think overnight about my next move as this beyond a joke and I'm not going to change my browser because some arsewipe at G**gle thinks I should use their piece of crap.
