Not sure what is going on but I tried creating accounts for one of my kids at amicable, cas and cosmology and the recaptcha failed for edge and chrome. Ublock was disabled so should have worked.

I used boincstats to create his accounts and was able to log in for him at those sites.

Is this a problem with the projects or are chrome and edge misconfigured?

AFACT active x (virus transfer protocol) is enabled on both browsers.

OK, seems that this is a known problem and a solution given there.

read a complaint here with no response by management

Tried Firefox, Chrome and the newest Edge got same error. One difference: Chrome did not popup the "select [car] [train] [airplane] [crossroads}" dialog box. I have that Chrome extension PrivacyPass which is supposed to allow skipping that once valid login is done.

When connecting to Cosmology via boincstats I errored out 41 vbox tasks before I got around to looking at the tasks que. Guess I should have looked at that first before trying to create a profile and join a team. vt is enabled and vbox installed. not sure what the problem is but 23 cpus were assigned out of the 24 available.

this shows up on all three browsers, hope it helps someone
