    My form works fine using Firefox, but I am having problems using the form with IE7 - the inputs become unusable due to major formatting problems. How can I fix this?

    Hi TUFC,

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I would first recommend that you upgrade to the latest version of IE. I tried to view your using IE8 and it looked nice and neat. The latest version IE9 can be downloaded here.

    We'll check if there are other solutions available. But for now, please install the latest stable IE version available. Our apologies for the inconvenience. Thank you for using JotForm!

    Hi, dears

    Here I go again, taking advantage of this topic, I'd like to know if there is a way to make my form works in IE7.

    I know that I can use IE8 or higher but what if one of my (newbie) clients uses IE7? He/She will stay frustrated to see the form all messed up and not working according it was supposed to.

    Any tip you can offer?

    Here's the link to my form: http://www.jotformpro.com/form/21064383968966

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Eduardo,

    Thanks for contacting us again.

     I think it is about the version limitation. IE8 generally follows all the proper W3C CSS standard. Something all other browsers have done for years. IE8 will not perform the same as IE7 compatibility mode. IE7 compatibility mode does not perform the same as IE7. The differences are their poor handling of CSS, as well as being far behind IE8 with other standards (which is very poor in IE8, too).

    This is something we cannot do anything about. I am sure my other colleagues will make comment on this issue.
