That's not the problem, 18.12 supports all the features from Compliance 
Suite 2019.

Describe the problem in details then.

Well, the "CAPTCHA protocol" has an HTTP fallback mechanism for clients 
that don't support rendering it in-band. So you need to configure 
additional request handler. It's actually documented. Simply put, add 
`"/captcha": ejabberd_captcha` to `request_handlers` of `ejabberd_http`

Pidgin is not a "modern" client at all: it's abandoned crap. Consider 
using Gajim or Dino (the problem with Dino though, is that you need to 
compile it from the master branch to get it usable).
