    For a long time now I am having problems with getting past reCAPTCHA.
    I mainly get traffic signs to select which hardly ever get it right and the easy ones like store front or cars - my selections always 'disolve'/dissapear. the 'grainy' pictures are the same, until eventually I am getting blocked after number of tries.
    I tried different computers and different networks in different places, deleted cookies and history, nothing seems to work. anyone has any idea how to get it fixed?

    That's interesting, I had similar issues when I first started coming across the "test". IDK what made it work for me, but eventually I had no problem with it. It's a learning process even for HI - Human Intelligence, yes it's a thing too.

    reCAPTCHA Help
    https://support.google.com/recaptcha/?hl=en

    This might help, perhaps you can tune your browser to better display the details for your eyes too. I use CTL-SHIFT+ to enlarge - better to see the details, or CTL - to see the "whole picture".

    Computer glasses help too, it's a thing, like Reading Glasses. I combine them in Progressive / Multifocal lenses, but sometimes just pure Computer Glasses keep near / far distractions out of focus allowing better concentration.

    Don't leave Computer Glasses at your desk though, they are a very attractive prize for klepto's. :)

    It didn't use to be like this for me and all of a sudden just started and it's very frustrating.
    I do see the images fine but it insists I'm not correct. 99% of the times I get the street signs, but the disolving selections on the 'easier' options annoy me more, it's like they're saying ' let's toy with you & see how long you'd last' lol

    I'm starting to loathe these stupid reCAPTCHA.
    LIke you said, the traffic signs never work properly. I will immediately click refresh when it asks for that one since I know it won't accept the correct result.
    Even the cars one is starting to become a 50-50 ordeal if it will accept the results.
    I wish I had a suggestion on how to make the process run better, other than my tendency to just avoid sites that use them - which is getting harder since I can't even log into my Dropbox without having to jump through those damn hoops

    It can happen in places like forums when you logon but my main worry is when I need to keep my noip addresses alive each month and I have a few of them (I get an e-mail with a link to confirm my hostname) so its quite a struggle.

    I know, they're such a pain to do now, and I agree the car ones are getting as difficult to work as the traffic signs. the grainy images and store fronts I know would be a waste of time to even try as it erases my selections. there's just no way around it.

    Post a URL so that we can try it. Preferably not a forum. I have found that sometimes I have your problems when I have the 'No Script' plugin running while trying a reCAPCHA. Do you have anything similar running?

    This is a good example: https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api2/demo
    I don't have 'No Script' just uBlock and even with that disabled it doesn't change anything.

    That test link worked OK for me with no issues. I had to turn off 'No Script'. So something else must be going on with your setup.

    I wish I knew what, it happens in other computers and different OS, networks so I can't figure out why. it wasn't always like this, just suddenly happened.
