Captcha has stopped working

A few days ago I found that Captcha was not working in Firefox on a Mac. I click on the relevant squares but get a new screen to work on. It just goes on and on and no matter how many screens I complete it won't let me through. It works fine on other browsers.

I hate Captcha and can't understand why webmasters can't use a better system to check that a viewer is a real person.

Is anyone else having this problem?

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Make sure you are not blocking content.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

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

Many thanks for that. Disabling hardware acceleration seems to have fixed it, along with another problem I was having with Firefox. So I'll leave it turned off rather than update the graphics drivers. I don't want to update MacOS to a newer version as I have software that won't run correctly on it.

Note that you won't be able to update to Firefox versions beyond Firefox 78. Users on MacOS 10.9, 10.10, and 10.11 have been moved to Firefox 78 ESR.
