this first happened on my local newspaper's site when trying to comment on stories and now while trying to open a gmail account. i can see the verification text/image but when i type it in it says that it doesn't match. i might make a mistake typing from time to time, but not six, eight, or ten times in a row. if i go to ie i am able to comment on the newspaper stories without issue.
