    Why do I see the form when I refresh the page but then it disappears? It happens in Firefox and IE, not Chrome.

    Hello alertheating,

    I'm sorry for the trouble caused to you.

    I did check your web page where you have embedded your form and I am able to replicate the issue you are having. The form is displayed for few seconds and then disappears.

    I am not sure why but the height of the form is automatically getting reset in firefox. Upon checking, I found that you have embedded your form with its iFrame embed code.

    I would suggest you to re-embed your form using its iFrame embed code without the script code. Please use the following iFrame embed code highlighted in green color and exclude the script code highlighted in red color:

    <iframe id="JotFormIFrame" onload="window.parent.scrollTo(0,0)" allowtransparency="true" src="//form.jotform.us/form/50726862407155" frameborder="0" style="width:100%; height:816px; border:none;" scrolling="no"></iframe>

    <script type="text/javascript">window.handleIFrameMessage = function(e) {var args = e.data.split(":");var iframe = document.getElementById("JotFormIFrame");if (!iframe)return;switch (args[0]) {case "scrollIntoView":iframe.scrollIntoView();break;case "setHeight":iframe.style.height = args[1] + "px";break;case "collapseErrorPage":if (iframe.clientHeight > window.innerHeight) {iframe.style.height = window.innerHeight + "px";}break;case "reloadPage":window.location.reload();break;}};if (window.addEventListener) {window.addEventListener("message", handleIFrameMessage, false);} else if (window.attachEvent) {window.attachEvent("onmessage", handleIFrameMessage);}</script>

    Do try the above embed code and get back to us if the issue persists.

    Thank you!
