Try to change your IP address if possible (ex. restart your router or ISP terminal), might work...

Welcome, new member Asyn ;)  We'll soon have enough members to start our own forum  ;D

No response from Avast team, I suppose?

Was wondering what was going on as I have seen this on occasion over the last couple of weeks.
I'm in.

Snap nothing seen other than what I reported in Reply #15, just seeing that ReCaptcha is monitoring, but no interrogation for me.

FWIW, both Asyn & I use Firefox.  Google is widely rumoured to penalise non-Chrome users.

My default browser is Firefox and I'm not bumping into this.

I also doubt that it's related to the browser, seems their algorithms aren't smart. ::)

Not necessarily, but anecdotal at best.

Hard to say, I guess it thinks you are a bot not a human (but it usually just throws up a check box), where it knows I'm 'Certainly Bot' :)

Has your ISP changed it IPs or method of connection ?

No nothing changed. Is the issue forum related or Browser, any idea?

Well yes and no. 

Yes, Forum - When I have to log in, I can see the fact that ReCaptcha is enabled on that page. 
See image in Reply #14 https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=234675.msg1549226#msg1549226

No, Browser - I think that if it were directly browser related - I would have expected to see a much larger activity level about the problem.

I don't know if it might possibly be add-on related, HideMyAss style add-ons where it is trying to mask you.  I use uBlock Origin but have it disabled for the Forums. I also use uMatrix and google analytics I haven't allowed.  I also use Privacy Badger and Disconnect add-ons and both are enabled on the forums.

You could try running your browser with add-ons disabled and see if that makes any difference.
