First things to check are;
Time and date on computer.
Time and date on router.
Restart Firefox with add-on's disabled
See if that clears the problem.
If add-on is problem restart them one at time till problem reoccurs.
Also are you perhaps using a VPN to obscure your identity

I've seen captcha a couple of times- I believe it's CLoudflare doing it, not the forum. Either your IP range or browser user agent may be in the Cloudflare sketchy range, or the traffic is very heavy.


Cloudflare is a service that website owners sign up for. The options, configuration, and any issues are for the website owners to address with their vendor, Cloudflare [emoticon]

I'll take that bet! You buying the beverages or the steaks? LOL.

I'm quite aware of the issues and who is responsible. Unfortunately, those folks don't feel it's important to properly configure and manage site security- which is how exploits are found and used.

If you want to have security (and you should), configure it properly and use it properly, and fix any problems quickly. Leaving them to fester just makes for bigger problems...and site slowdowns...and crashes...and rebooting of servers... [emoticon]

These kinds of problems are warning signs that should be heeded. Inappropriate and repeated flagging of safe users means the stats you read about how many "suspicious behavior" items were blocked are skewed and incorrect, which lead to a false sense of security.

More experienced security folks also realize it also means the "wrong" behavior or users are being targeted, instead of actual dangers to the site. Translation: False alerts = Bad definitions and incorrect configuration.

The incorrect configuration could be on your end.
Since few have the problem it is probably something in the configuration on your end.

Okay, since you are so certain, what is the problem?

More specifically, on what information do you base your analysis? I've provided a great deal of very accurate and applicable detail, yet your "gut" (?) tells you all that is wrong and that another user cannot possibly know anything about it [emoticon]

So please enlighten us all with whatever telepathy you are using.

While you're at it, please PM me your certifications. I don't share mine in public and wouldn't ask you too, either.

I think the Doctor has it correct. There is something on this site that suspects that his IP is a potential bot. Have been ok on home ISP (SBC) and mobile ISP (Verizon).

As far as the betting goes, I will let you know if I shot myself in the foot by saying no issues.

There's no way to lose that bet. Whichever you lose, I supply the other, along with the grillin' [emoticon]

It was more in fun than serious...but the bet still holds [emoticon] Let me know when and were we settle up.

And that goes for the rest of you ne'er do wells...bring your favorite meats or beverage and we'll roast and toast 'em both [emoticon]
