If you do not already have a Webvisum account, which is free, you must request an invitation to get one here:   

There is a 3-field form asking for your name, e-mail address, and that you enter a comment of some sort in the third field.  I requested an invitation via the website earlier this afternoon and have yet to get a response back.  You can apparently get an invitation generated by any existing WebVisum user.


After getting the invitation you register here:

A programmer named James Scholes made a version of the Webvisum Firefox add-on that is digitally signed so that newer versions of Firefox can install it that’s based on the version 0.9.2.  See the article entitled, Webvisum CAPTCHA Solver Returns to Firefox, on for full details.
