Lots of CAPTCHAs from Amazon

Unread postby Axatax » Wed, 06 Jun 2018, 16:16

I have to solve a CAPTCHA every time I log into amazon.com. This probably started about three months or so ago. This even happens with a fresh profile so maybe it's related to the user agent string?. This is the only site that seems to do this. I have dyslexia and basically can't make any sense of these, lol.

ED: I also have 2FA enabled via SMS and they still present the CAPTCHAs.

They probably changed something on their end. Captcha problems are almost never a technical issue with the browser, but is an issue with how sites determine whether a user needs to be challenged or not. One of the big flags they like to use is whether you are using one of the big mainstream browsers. Unfortunately, there isn't much Pale Moon can do about that.

Hi,

had that some time ago, it happened when I logged in at times and IP adresses, I usually did not use Amazon before.

This is a widely reported problem of amazon. There seem to be some special Login pages (/ap/adam). You might wish to try to make mistakes with the captchas. Amazon has a patent to differ between humans and robots by errors, humans make.

I wonder if anyone else has this problem...

I have a different ISP entirely from when I posted this. It's only Palemoon that gives me all these CAPTCHAs - and I mean it's like crazy CAPTCHA city.

Firefox or Chrome, no CAPTCHAs at all.

Yes... If you repeatedly fail the CAPTCHAs (which I do, because I have dyslexia), you get a more simplified CAPTCHA, but I'd like to not have to do this at all.

Try closing the tab after a fail, or maybe 2 fails.
Then go back. See what happens...
Linux Mint 17.3, Cinnamon, Pale Moon 28.0.1 (x64)
Linux Mint 19.0, Cinnamon, Pale Moon 28.0.1 (x64)
Dell Inspiron 15z Inspiron 5523, 6 GB Memory, Intel® Core™ i3-3217U,
Intel 7 Series/C210 Audio. Windows is gone.
