Same with Brave: I'm logged in into a gmail account and a custom domain hosted on gmail, yet every time there's a reCAPTCHA widget on the site, I have to do it 2 or 3 times before I'm let in.

One trick that seems to help fool that awful piece of tech: click slowly on the images, as if you were thinking a second or two before each click. Maybe click a wrong image and deselect it again. In other words, behave like a slow human, and it seems to work better than if I solve it as quickly as possible.

I also have the feeling that making mistakes — selecting an image that looks like a traffic light but isn’t — sometimes results in faster admittance than being surgically accurate.

Again, being slower and more error prone seems to be rewarded.

I don't even know what the right answer is in a lot of cases. There's a bit of the traffic light casing at the edge of a square, does that count as a traffic light, or only the lamp itself?

The right answer isn't what it is looking for. Its more looking for the way you try and work out the answer.
