Well, how can you not love them? Same as women: unpredictable, when they listen, they do what you tell them, not what you wanted them to do, and when they freeze you can walk on your eyelashes, they won't tell you what's wrong, you have to guess it all by yourself...

And once more it is confirmed that one of the best methods of solving computer issues is do nothing and hope that the problem will solve itself. I did nothing and just succeded in logging in with the usual FF.

Let's see what happens tomorrow.

Did you try launching FF in safe mode (aka no plugins or add-ons running) ?

Actually, I checked and I have the latest version of FF. Also, some very minor scripts, no additional plugins.

And even more interestingly enough, I tried registering at PHPBB portal and, guess what? Can't log in. Got the authorisation email, but keeps saying "password incorrect". So now at least I know it's at my end. But weird.

I'd just try to disable all the plugins in case you have. The captcha form is basic HTML4 and ought to be compatible with any web browser, independently from sex or religion..

I used to get weird mangled pages a few years ago with some bad plugin.

Well I'll just lament here with regards to last post. Opera used to be awesome browser. But as they decided to go for webkit as thier engine, it becomes just another chrome skin, and they droped linux support...

I'm glad to see that you're Microsoft Windows 8 O/S with IE10 worked great, out of the box, compared to the older version of Firefox. It's likely a plugin issue. Update Firefox and all the plugins, and you may be able to access the site with more ease.

However, in my experience Opera is a much better browser. I used to be a long time fan of Firefox for many years, but as of 3 or 4 years ago I switched to Opera and have been very happy since. I recommend you give it a try.

P.S. In terms of corporate greed and evil corporate citizenship, Apple $oft is far worse these days. But I digress.

Well, what do you know. Micro$oft IE let me in.

And the worst part isn't missing Captcha, it's the inability to put in a password. Somehow, my Firefox and this forum don't like each other.

For the record, I have an old version of FF at home.

That is definitely a problem.

Do you have a suspicious plugin in Firefox which might be hiding the captcha?
Otherwise the bug should be reported at www.phpbb.com, including all your system details and the board's version (3.0.10).
