Yep, mine can be in Med or Med High security, and a lot of captcha's & other features don't work reliably. Even if allow all scripts for the page.
Sometimes it does work.

The times - as a test - I immediately visited the same sites w/ firefox (immediately going to same site probably isn't a good idea, if strict anonymity is required) & same NoScript settings -AFAIK, plus had AdBlock and / or Ghostery running, the captchas or page features usually worked right away. I'm convinced that sometimes, it's just Tor Browser they don't like, or certain countries of exit relay, or certain IPa ranges. I've repeated it enough to know it's not a fluke. For a fact, I know it's mostly *not* because I incorrectly solved the captcha, which they often say.

Sometimes, they start renewing pictures in the array that I've already checked, before I get to the end & submit. I tried doing it faster - they replaced them faster.
Obvious they didn't want Tor users on those types of sites.
