    Can you please take a look at this clone form if this is what you want to achieve?


    If yes, please replace your current custom css code to this.

    .form-line-error {

    background: transparent;


    .form-line-error input:not(#coupon-input), .form-line-error textarea, .form-validation-error {

    /* border: 1px solid #ccc !important; */

    -moz-box-shadow: none !important;

    /* -webkit-box-shadow: none !important; */

    /* box-shadow: none !important; */


    .form-line-error input:not(#coupon-input), .form-line-error textarea {

    border: 1px solid #ccc !important;

    -moz-box-shadow: none !important;

    -webkit-box-shadow: none !important;

    box-shadow: none !important;


    If you need further assistance, please do let us know.

    Please take a look at this form here: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/42675920103955

    If that is what you would like to have it looking you can simply clone it to your account by following these steps:

    How to Clone an Existing Form from a URL

    If you would like to do it yourself then I would suggest removing all of your CSS and then injecting this CSS instead:

    .form-line.form-line-error input
        border: 1px solid #ccc !important;
        box-shadow: 0 1px 2px #eee inset !important;

    You can see here how to Inject Custom CSS Codes

    Do let me know if this is what you wanted to achieve :)

    Best Regards,
