Everytime I open Firefox to search I get the following response:

And I have to go through a captcha process to get through. Oddly enough, I NEVER get this problem if I search (for exactly the same addresses) from within Google Chrome. Is this a Google scan to try and force back to Google Chrome?

Usually I only get that if I'm doing a bunch of extremely picky searches with weird data ranges. I suppose there could be other circumstances that look suspicious to Google.

One possible difference from Google Chrome is that most people log into Chrome with their Google Account, so Google knows who you are, whereas more people probably use Google anonymously in Firefox.
