How to remove ‘Click allow if you are not a robot’ pop-ups
Definition: “Click allow to confirm that you are not a robot” is a rogue website, which shows unwanted pop-ups and ads in the browser. Moreover, it redirects users’ tabs to other malicious websites that also threaten the security of your browser. Usually, the infection occurs after you visited and even clicked on suspicious websites. Of course, torrent downloads might also allow adware install on your computer. So, if you notice the same rogue website appearing even when surfing on a legitimate one, the adware is on your computer. When browser problems occur, it is also usually the case that viruses are on your computer. To appear legitimate, the app can pose as a way to improve surfing experience. Or, it may display alerts about a potential system infections. So, the software pretends to assist users in the removal of those infections. Of course, cybercriminals developed it with a clear purpose: their interest is to gain profit from affiliates. And they try to reach their goal by delivering intrusive ads and redirections to the website visitors. But they do not stop here. The malware can even change the browser’s settings and also illegally track users’ web activities.

I tried to follow these Instructions How to remove this adware
1 Run the browser on your PC and go to its Settings (the three dots or three horizontal lines in the menu) 2 Expand the Privacy and Security options, in the left panel. 3 Access Site Settings in the menu that opens. 4 In the provided list, identify the adware by its name. 5 Click on it. 6 Set Notifications, Pop-ups and ads to Block.
These instructions do not correlate to Fox Browser -- How can I get rid of this pop-up on Fox Browser? Any Suggestions? I am running Windows 8.1 and Windows Defender does not seem to find this Adware. Is there a way to find it? By the way, "There is no 'Click Allow' to click . . . . ."

This doesn't look like a regular reCAPTCHA, but more like an attempt to click on it and infect you with malware. Best is not to click on it, but ignore it and close the tab.
You can remove all data stored in Firefox for a specific domain via "Forget About This Site" in the right-click context menu of an history entry ("History -> Show All History" or "View -> Sidebar -> History").
Using "Forget About This Site" will remove all data stored in Firefox for this domain like history and cookies and passwords and exceptions and cache, so be cautious. If you have a password or other data for that domain that you do not want to lose, make sure to backup this data or make a note.
You can't recover from this 'forget' unless you have a backup of involved files.
If you revisit a 'forgotten' website, data for that website will be saved once again.
