Yes, I can confirm. Multiple machines, both architectures, no hosts or other blocking, safe mode: same result.

Revisiting the thread, I realized some helpful info might be left out. It happens when you click on the "Reply" button. It IS the captcha mechanism but I don't think it necessarily means you're (end user) going to get a captcha (if it worked right.) In other words, in Firefox, clicking on "Reply" works well, without captcha shown at all.

I've tried everything, user agents, defaut PM profile, disabled firewall, default hosts file, bypassed my router.
This is very important I use CL every day.

Anyone know a way to fix this?

thanks

Here at my end, the issue is caused by blocking.

Problem filters:
* Fanboy's Annoyance List
* Fanboy's Cookiemonster List

Problem rule:

Code: Select all

##.grecaptcha-badge
Fix (add to filters):

Code: Select all

craigslist.*#@#.grecaptcha-badge
--

EDIT1:
I've reported the problem here:
https://github.com/ryanbr/fanboy-adblock/issues/353/

--

EDIT2:
What the hell!?
Earlier today, when visiting craigslist, I used uBO's logger to find that blocked element.
After whitelisting it, I tested the "reply" button several times, and I swear that it worked just fine!
But now, it's broken again, and I can't get it to work no matter what I do!!
Oh well, guess I can tell ryanbr to disregard the report that i filed then.

Most of the time it doesn't work here.
But every once in a while it works, just randomly - maybe 1 in 4 tries.

No sweat. I just despise chrome but I have a portable version I use in situations like this.
I basically make my living with CL so its really important to me.
I even tried restoring my OS to a saved image with acronis to before this happened. no luck.

@cartel, Just a mention -
Chrome isn't the only alternative. The reply button works ok in current Basilisk (2018.04.27) and FF52.*esr too
(though a FF52 UA override did nothing).

I don't know if, between us all, we've come up with the information that will facilitate a fix.
But FWIW, here's what I could see...

Error console
It had one CSP error, and one warning related to recaptcha.
Disabling CSP made the error disappear, but didn't fix anything:

I guess I'm moving over to basilisk.
PM had a great run but I feel there's a push to move on. Hopefully for the better.

Well basilisk is your browser though right?
Its true CL did something but I cant reply to items with PM thats the most important part of the site, if I cant buy, I cant sell.

If you have a way for you to continue PM that would be great.

I thought the roadmap was to discontinue PM and shift to basilisk?

Sorry if I sounded negative I dont mean to.

What does this have to do with Pale Moon?

UXP will be the long-term future for Pale Moon. As such, we need something (an application) to develop this alongside our current browser platform and back-end. Eventually, Pale Moon will become a "UXP application", just like Basilisk is now. UXP applications retain full customization and freedom in application layout code, so the "look and feel" will not significantly change when Pale Moon is moved to the new platform (somewhere in 2018). Basilisk will allow us to develop and mature UXP so it'll be ready when we want to move over to it.

ok...

Pale Moon is already being.. HAS been ported to UXP.. We are just fixing what busted and verifying all the features.. Basically, same process we did for Tycho to produce Pale Moon 27.. Except the same.. Least from a Pale Moon only perspective.

SEE: https://github.com/MoonchildProductions/uxp/issues/57

But for the love of god do NOT comment to the metaissue..

OK I must not have read it slow enough, I thought PM was moving to Basilisk, but in fact its UXP moving to PM.
I thought that was it, PM discontinued.

Heres me after putting this 24' antenna up on this pipe in my tree the other day.
Its for my "CB".

I try to research as much as I can but it takes a few tries to get back to reality.

I found with PM, nothing helped with this captcha psych-out.
Basilisk will do the same thing if I have google. com with a user agent of

Code: Select all

 general.useragent.override.google.com;Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:40.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/40.1
it does the same thing as PM.
When I change it to

Code: Select all

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:52.9) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/52.9
it works as expected.

CL did change something for sure, I tried user agents on PM as I said a fresh default profile and even the Basilisk agent on PM.
Tried permissions, compatiblities, not much else from default.

I can use Basilisk till this irons out. The browser is nice, looks just like PM for me.
