Description

I just tried to log into my account on this trac with Torbrowser, and I got an endless series of recaptcha challenges even though I answered them correctly.

This is a brand-new install of Tor browser. I downloaded the current Tor browser, checked the GPG sig, ran it, unchecked the box that said "don't save state, i.e. private browsing mode", and then loaded the Tor trac and got this problem. The "about Tor" page describes it as "Tor Browser 5.0.6".

This issue happens with recaptcha on many sites.
It's most common when JavaScript is disabled. (Typically CloudFlare sites or Tor's Trac.)

But you appear to have JavaScript enabled, so we'll need more information to diagnose the issue:

  • Are you running at the default "Low" security level?
    • (This will also confirm if you have JavaScript on.)
  • What happens when you leave private browsing mode enabled?

Hi this is zooko2, but I apparently lost the password for "zooko2", so now I've created zooko3. Thanks for following-up on my bug report! Anyway, first of all I confirmed that I have the same "rerererecaptcha problem". How do I check the current security level? I just explored the UI a bit, and I didn't see a way to view or change the security level to see if it is still "Low".

Replying to zooko3:

Summary: can't log into this trac over Tor -- recaptcha hellDuring logon into this trac over Tor - recaptcha hell

Description is correct, summary is incorrect -> changed.
You have been logged on after the first correct recaptcha was entered. But the page with a new recaptcha appears again (see "logged in as" on top of it to make sure that logon completed). JS on.
The bug is on the site (most likely) or CloudFlare, or Tor Browser (not likely) - so, is adding this ticket to Tor Browser correct?

The captcha is currently disabled. So the problem should disappear.
