    This is my form, please see it: http://ammibalustrades.com.au/FREE-Online-Quote.php

    For instance, if you choose 'balustrades' in the products feild, you will also need to fill in another feild: 'balustrades length'. I put a hint example for this text box. The example appears grey. All that is right. BUT when you click that text box and begin to type, the data entered is grey and you have to type it all over again.

    What is this about????

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    First off, I'd like to say sorry for this inconvenience. I can confirm the existence of such bug when using Internet Explorer. I see that you're using IE9, and I've tested your form under IE8 with the same results.

    With that in mind, I have submitted a report ticket to notify our developers about this issue. Please bear with us. Thank you for your patience.



    EDIT: @allan, please view this form using IE8 or IE9 to see the bug described by the user.

    Im still having the same bug in IE 9 version 9.0.8112.16421, my form is this one: http://form.jotform.co/form/21856367395870, and the fields where im having the problem are the e-mail ones from Participante 2 to Participante 5, in order to show a new Participante you must choose "si" in the last question.


    Is there a way to solve this?
