Summary0002563: CSS is hiding captcha
DescriptionOn the fanfiction.net login pages https://www.fanfiction.net/login.php and https://m.fanfiction.net/m/login.php the captcha graphic is not visible. However, deleting the CSS files associated with the page allows it to be seen - something in Netsurf's interpretation of the CSS is hiding the image.
Steps To ReproduceVisit the login page. Display is as shown in image window3/jpg.
Use the 'Full save' option to save the page to disc as an application directory (login1/zip attached)
Open the directory and delete the CSS files to create the version login2/zip, and double-click on the !Run file to redisplay the page. The captcha appears (window2/jpg)
This value can now be typed back into the original window in order to log into the site.
Additional InformationThe captcha times out after a certain period - double-clicking on this specific attached example will no longer produce the visible captcha shown in the screenshot, but duplicating the process above will do so.
TagsNo tags attached.
