    Can you try re-embedding the forms on your website using the iframe code? It is understandable that the form's look and feel will differ on each kind of browser application. This due to the fact that each browser are also created to function differently.

    If your form is embedded using script code, chance is, it will mimic the other scripts on the current browser, thus it will behave and display differently on each browser type.

    But if you use a separate iframe (using the form iframe code), the form scripts will be enclosed within the iframe, preventing it from trying to mimic or execute other scripts instruction that are in the type of browser it is being viewed currently.

    Please inform us if there are other clarifications needed.

    Hello guystalkingff.  If you're referring to the email address textbox for "Join Our E-mail List!!!", this is because the textbox is too long to contain the label and the textbox in one line.  So it automatically wraps and puts the textbox to the next line. 

    If you wish to maintain the label and textbox in a single line, you should reduce the size of the textbox. To do this, simply edit your form on the form builder, select the email field, and then select Size on top.  Enter a lower value (probably 27), save the form and then try to see again if the form lines up properly in your web page.

    Please do let us know if you need further assistance.

    Sounds like CSS issues for different devices that need to be worked out possibly.

    We use optimized CSS for mobile devices, so that it looks different from desktop version.

    Please note that this is done to provide better usability for form users.
