Your new secure content feature in the subject bar blocks my reCAPTCHA on my site's login page. That page is SSL encrypted and nothing should block reCAPTCHA.

After the latest update of your browser, the reCAPTCHA (a Google product now) gets blocked. There is no way to safe-list it because anytime the page reloads, the reCAPTCHA is blocked again. This reCAPTCHA uses an API and an Iframe but it is directly from Google. This is a terrible feature for someone who owns a web site as well as for an end-user who cannot figure out why they are not able to log-in.

PS: I also have the NoScript add-on, however, this should have nothing to do with the aforementioned issue. Running Win 7 with the latest version of Firefox. Please help!

Is this an option for you:

In order to avoid getting browser warnings when you use reCAPTCHA on an SSL site, you should replace http://www.google.com/recaptcha/api with https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api when you request a challenge.

The following was defined in the reCAPTCHA includes/functions/recaptchalib.php file

define("RECAPTCHA_API_SERVER", "http://www.google.com/recaptcha/api"); define("RECAPTCHA_API_SECURE_SERVER", "https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api");

I added the "s" to http in RECAPTCHA_API_SERVER and everything works great now. Thank you for your prompt response and for resolving this issue.
