So My machines been able to properly load capacha for weeks but not ontil recently have I had problems. Because of my recent problems I have had to resort to using a special user agent from another browser known as AquaWeb which has much less features and won't download anything. Luckily using user agent switcher I was able to pull out its user agent in the prefrences.js file but for the sake of compatibility I shouldnt have to change a user agent just to use capacha. Maybe this is only my computer but I have a feeling perhaps google updated their code. Any help would be great,
Thanks and regards Thomas

    For Captchas (Google or others) in general: There are many things that can go wrong, leading to a Captcha not being displayed where there should be one. Mac too slow to compute the Captcha in time (looking at the iMac G3 in the OP), changed settings in TFF prevent the Captcha from loading, server doesn't accept the useragent, server doesn't interpret our useragent correctly, something vital is blocked by an ad blocker or a 'security suite' installed on the Mac, or never executed because of a Noscript rule, or we simply don't support the technology used for displaying the Captcha.

    When I encouter this, the first thing I do is to create a fresh browser profile and see if it works there (it usually does).
