    I cannot drag fields, instead, it selects the entire section using Google Chrome Version 37.0.2062.120 m

    Asked by SJWForms on September 23, 2014 at 09:10 AM


    For the past few months I've been having issues with JotForm in Google Chrome. I kept leaving it because I figured something would get updated and it would start working again, but it hasn't.

    1) I can't edit any forms in Chrome. I can open them for editing but when I try to click and drag to move form elements, it selects everything instead of moving.

    2) I was trying to contact you through Chrome and that's not working either. When I click on the "Contact Us" link in Chrome, it goes to post something on the forum. When I fill out the form and submit it, nothing has been posted. I've tried four separate times and it doesn't post anything.

    I really like Jotform and I'll still keep using it in FireFox if I have to, but it would be great it these bugs could get fixed.

    Thanks for an awesome service!

    We're sorry to know that, but we don't receive any similar reports after such version released by Google. In fact, we recommend Google Chrome for creating forms.

    To troubleshoot the problem, please try disabling your extensions, especially those who will block some scripts like Adblock Plus. Based on your screenshot, you have it installed to your Chrome browser. Or, you could run Google Chrome in incognito mode (add on disabled).

    Update us here if the issue persists after doing this. Please take a screenshot of the window. Also Press F12, while the browser is open, click on Console tab and take a screenshot. Red texts means an error:

    Thank you!

    I disabled all of my extensions and the issue still persists. This issue is present on two different computers running Chrome. Here is a screenshot of the console tab. I don't know what the red text means, but it's there.

    Thanks for your reply and for providing the screenshot. There seems to be no major error shown on your browser console log. Actually, we are running on the same version of Chrome Browser (Version 37.0.2062.120 m) but I never encountered such problem.

    Screencast: https://docs.google.com/a/jotform.com/file/d/0B-COejOprTz3c2I3SE94VmxVY0U/edit?usp=drivesdk

    May I suggest to please clear your browser's cache and cookies and check it again. If the issue persists, try to reset your browser settings https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/3296214?hl=en.

    If none of the suggestions above works, please let us know so we can check and investigate this further.

    Hi, sorry for the delayed response.

    I cleared the cookies and cache and reset the browser settings and the issue still persists.

    Also, I cannot post to the forum in Chrome, either.

    Here's a screen cast, maybe this will help?

    Everything is working fine on my end also. Have you tried already uninstalling your chrome browser and install it again? If not, can you please try it if that fix the issue on your end?

    I uninstalled and reinstalled and the issue persists. I honestly don't know what the problem is at this point. I think I've tried everything.

    That is quite odd, I am using the same version of Chrome too, and everything works perfectly. I do not know if you have checked if JavaScript is enabled? 

    Please follow this instructions:

    Hope this helps you.

    I am getting this same problem too. Chrome version 37.0.2062.124 m.

    Wierdly, I was able to reply to this thread using Chrome but I got exactly the same problem as the OP when I tried to reply to my own post (http://www.jotform.com/answers/435242-The-field-values-are-no-longer-being-passed-between-the-jotforms-after-switching-to-iFrames-embedded-code?entrymessage=10732640770). I had to use Firefox to reply to my own thread.

    Tried: Cache cleared, Javascript is enabled, browser restarted.

    Well, it's good to know that I'm not going crazy! :) I wonder what this could be? Hm. Well, I'll continue to use JotForm Firefox until the Chrome issue gets straightened out. Weird, though.
