After much pulling of hair and gnashing of teeth I managed to register with facebook . My problem was that their "capcha" display was not visible for some reason. I contacted their helpdesk and they eventually fixed up my registration. Only took them 3 weeks to respond but what the heck.

I've tried to make contact with some old friends today but each time I try to send a message, I'm getting this invisible capcha shite again.

It must be a setting option on my Dell PC as I was able to view the capcha symbol on my wife's laptop. Anyone know what I should do? My sanity and a cat's safety is at risk.

I'm using IE6 or 7 or something.

@lmur,
I've been registered with FB for months and have no idea what you're talking about when you refer to a capcha.

This is the message I'm getting:

@jespah,
When I just registered my new account on Facebook, there was one. I don't remember if I had to do it the first time around.

They're those distorted words that humans can decipher but computers can't. It stops automated registrations (or is supposed to, I don't know if it works).

No advice though lmur, sorry. I guess contact FB's helpdesk again. If your former contact was via email, replying to the last one may save some time vs. starting all over again.

@sozobe,
Thanks sozobe. I banged an e-mail off to them and await their response which, hopefully, occurs this side of Christmas <sigh>

since it seems to be a problem with your system rather than FB, wouldn't it be better to contact Dell support?

Ah, well, then verify your account with them. It's possible you're not accepting the cookie or the cookie was somehow damaged.

Move to Firefox instead of IE. IE is a pain in the lower neck.

I don't remember what facebook uses for their captchas but that text you describe sounds like they are using recaptcha.net.

So I'd start with seeing if you can get a recaptcha.net captcha to display in your browser, you can see one at the top of this page:

http://recaptcha.net/learnmore.html

In this implementation (which is not necessarily how Facebook is doing it, and I'm not going to go try to trigger a captcha on Facebook to see how they do it) it uses an iframe, and if you think settings may be the issue I'd look into what iframe related settings (or settings relating to cross-domain content) you might have changed.

@lmur,
It must be the cookies, maybe IE doesn't accept the cookies, or you must update your flash player or your browser. When you tried to see it, wasn't there any confirmation saying you must install something in order to see the code?
Or I suggest to try with firefox also or even chrome. If that keeps happen, you should update your flash player. It's not facebook, I have an account on facebook, but never happened that, so it must be your browser and the player...

Thanks to all who responded. I switched browsers to Firefox months ago (the topic dates back to May) and the problem conveniently disappeared. IE has been consigned to the recycling bin of history and is not missed.

@lmur,
One: update your browser. The latest IE is more secure, less bulky, and more reliable (less likely to crash).
Two: I have problems with these annoying anti-bot/anti-spam features and I see them for the most part. I swear sometimes I type the correct response and I still get flack for allegedly getting the response wrong. I don't think they're as reliable as the programmers of these things make them out to be.
