Snapshot of the bug

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:31.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/31.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20140702123034

Steps to reproduce:

1.) Clicked on "register" link on https://addons-dev.allizom.org/
2.) Was redirected to Register Page.
3.) I quote from the Register Page :
             Are you human? * What's this?

             Please enter both words below, separated by a space.

             If this is hard to read, you can try different words or try a different type 
             of challenge instead.

4.) The statement clearly states "enter 'BOTH' words" .


Actual results:

There was a captcha image with just ONE word and registration was successful by entering just the ONE word shown in the captcha image


Expected results:

The lines above the captcha image clearly state "Please enter both words below, separated by a space." .

Case 1: Either the wording is wrong and should be "Please enter the word below."

Case 2: The captcha image is wrong and there must be 2 words in the image or 2 images with 1 word each.

Actually when I later went to the register page, it loaded a captcha with 2 images sometimes and at other times a captcha with 1 image loaded. This bug was reproduced using other machines also.I am using firef0x 31.0 on ubuntu 14.10.
