People commenting on Darknetlive.com articles and leaving reviews on the Dread listing are regularly asking for help accessing Dread. A common theme seems to be blank captcha images.

The solution to getting the captcha to show up is to update the Tor Browser to the most recent version available. For people on Tails, the most recent version of Tails is also necessary to get the captcha to load.
