Additional Information

Tried with or without shield and still cannot get it to work in any case. Tried updating Chrome since I saw it used chromium, but it did not help.


Anybody else having this issue?


Thanks for reporting @boydcyr!

Does it work with shields DOWN? You can adjust the per site shield via lion icon at top right

Did you have Strict site isolation enabled in Preferences > Security?

Thanks. :slight_smile:


I removed the strict site isolation and it started working again. Thanks a lot @eljuno you saved the day :smile:


Thanks for confirming @boydcyr. However, I created an issue regarding this:



I have VPN (NordVPN) and everytime I hit a Google re-Captcha it fails … help please!


Hi @The_Mainlander,

Did you have site isolation enabled in Preferences > Security? If it enabled, disable it would make reCaptcha work again.
