I have no captcha at all in firefox on any version new or old either 32bit or 64bit i am on windows 10x64 and not showing anything but IE and chrome are ok showing it i even tried this https://patrickhlauke.github.io/recaptcha/ and nothing i only get Google reCAPTCHA test

Adds the vanilla reCAPTCHA widget, for testing...

and nothing below i have no idea of how to get it working tried all the suggestions about this issue and nothing fixed it

Attached screenshots

Chosen solution

Ok seems that after the win10 april update the FF recaptcha issue was solved so this means it was a really a OS issue as i thought but the weird is why it would affect FF only and not all browsers again microsoft at their best lol

What's really weird is that on my win7 x32 the captcha is working fine on FF seems to me this is a windows 10 FF issue or something

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link} by holding down the <Shift> (Mac=Options) key, and then starting Firefox.

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

Already tried that same issue

Start your Computer in safe mode with network support. Then start Firefox. Try Secure websites. Is the problem still there?

Do you see the reCaptcha iframe in the Inspector on the test page?

more options

no no iframe there

more options

So it sounds that the JavaScript that creates the iframe is blocked.

You can create a new profile to test if your current profile is causing the problem.

See "Creating a profile":

If the new profile works then you can transfer files from a previously used profile to the new profile, but be cautious not to copy corrupted files to avoid carrying over problems.

Boot the computer in Windows Safe mode with network support to see if that has effect in case security software is causing problems.
