The CAPTCHA only displays at that link while logged out. A comparison screenshot here would be helpful.

Per request - I've selected the captcha so that you can see where it ends and gap between it and the refresh link.

The CAPTCHAs vary in height. I put a min-height of 95 (which seems to be a close upper bound) to accomplish two goals:

  1. Don't scale or skew the CAPTCHA. We don't want to make it even less readable.
  2. Don't have the move jump vertically when they ask for a new CAPTCHA.

If this seems to be worse than jumping, we could look at removing the min-height. Or, we could change the CAPTCHA generation script to output fixed height images (a bigger project).

No, that's just to avoid splitting the reload text and reload image. This is about the whitespace in the CAPTCHA

E3 requesting backport to wmf4 (only) with gerrit change 64250 so this change to the new Create account form can accompany the wmf4 roll-out. Low-risk since the new forms are opt-in.

Fix is backported to wmf4. The captcha is a little closer because it's inside the fancycaptcha-image-container, whose min-height we set to 95 so the rest of the form doesn't (well, rarely) shift up and down each time you refresh the captcha image.
