This has only been happening to me since today, yesterday I wasn't having this problem with capture checks. I don't use a vpn and my home ip address hasn't changed either. So it is a problem because it wasn't happening before, if the problem doesn't get solved I will be visiting Linux.org a lot less because it's a PITA to have to do a Captcha every 10 min after I do a page refresh.I'm not sure if I explained this well. There's nothing you can do to prevent this from happening.
I mentioned back in post #5 that I thought connecting to linux.org with HTTPS would bypass the Captcha requirement (after a short delay). I still find this to be true, for me, and only HTTP demands the captcha with both Firefox and Vivaldi. Can you (and others) confirm this? It will be a lot less frustration to just use HTTPS if it is a true workaround.it's a PITA to have to do a Captcha every 10 min after I do a page refresh.
My Firefox runs 2 ad blockers and I do block scripts with NoScript. Linux.org is allowed to run scripts, but Google is not. As I said above, I can still avoid the captcha problem. I am not using a vpn. My Vivaldi uses a built-in ad blocker, but it allows scripts.I don't have ads blocked - nor do I block scripts - but I am connected to a VPN. It's a well-known VPN, so may be treated more kindly than other VPNs.
I use HTTPS Everywhere addon with Firefox. It may be that when it hangs on timeout, that it is my script blocker that keeps the captcha from loading. So reloading the browser fixes that until the next timeout. I have not been forced into a captcha yet except using HTTP to test this.I always use HTTPS. The site has only asked me to fill in a single CAPTCHA today. It has evaluated my browser numerous times, but only one CAPTCHA today.
Indeed!But it sure is annoying.
certainly it shows no sense of imagination- i mean you could have images of Linux distros and ask click imgs of Linux Distro, they could thow in red Herrings of XP , Windows 10 etcThis morning it asked for two pages of bikes, I figured I was new so maybe I would accept it.
This afternoon 4 bloody screens of boats, one which had a square blurring the photos.
Life has become too short to put up with this BS, I just find it disrespectful.
I have a zero tolerance policy for this so will be leaving the site.
Working on workarounds for my FF and Waterfox currently, showing progress, will report back when I can.
