    Can you give us the link to the form and the page where it is embedded to, if it is embedded? There is no single fix for cross-browser issues. The best way is to test, test, and test.

    For what it's worth, stand-alone forms generated by Jotform's form builder are cross-browser compatible. It is when you embed them that they behave differently, since we absolutely have no control over your page's elements.

    I guess the only real working solution is to test. If you have other questions, feel free to contact us again.

    Hi gcmx,

    Thanks for letting us know about your concerns. In order to facilitate the troubleshooting process, may we ask what particular issue/s does your clients often complain about using non-Safari browsers? Can you confirm that you created the forms using a Mac?

    We'll be on stand by for your feedback. Thank you for using JotForm!

    hi there, yes, i'm a mac user and use iWeb to design my site.  as i had said, my forms work great on safari, but not on other browsers.  i tested, tested, and retested but still the same.  the only way to resolve issue is to redirect user to your stand-alone form page, even though i would prefer to have the form on my site. until there's a fix, i'll stick with redirecting to your form page.  thanks for helping . . .
