Description

this is a very old and annoying issue, google recaptcha (v2) never works. I do the recaptcha correctly every time, and on clicking verify it just resets the recaptcha into an endless loop of aggravating infinity. i cant log into certain sites or even use someones contact page due to recaptcha loop. pick any website with a recaptcha, in my case trying to log into discord. recaptcha doesnt validate, ever...I wonder if it will be fixed sometime this decade? ive seen this problem for years.

Tor browser version:
8.0.9 (based on Mozilla Firefox 60.6.1esr) (64-bit) windows 10 x64. doesnt work on macOS version either.

(A) Are you using the default setting for the security slider? That is, allowing javascript, etc?

(B) Assuming yes to question 'A', I believe this is a choice by the destination website, to punish the IP address that you're coming from, and isn't actually about the browser at all. :(

That said, I use websites that use recaptcha, in Tor Browser, and it works for me. (I still haven't figured out what the internet thinks is a traffic light, but that's a different problem.)

Works for me with Tor Browser 8.5a12 and the security slider set to medium on google.com when searching.

NoScript is actually a default extension. What else are your modifications to Tor Browser? What happens if you go right away to a reCAPTCHA page with a clean new Tor Browser 8.0.9 installed to a different directory on your Windows machine?
