You told torbutton you didn't want to redirect, so it doesn't for the rest of 
the session.  If you restart firefox/aurora, it should prompt you again on a 
google captcha. 

You can also control this behaviour by right clicking torbutton, choosing 
preferences, going to Security Settings, and clicking the Headers tab. The 
last check box will let you automatically (or not) redirect on google captcha.

It's the stock set of plugins that ship with Firefox.
