    The issue seems to lie in the CSS used to place the image in the textfield, the current one is tied to that specific textfield

    textarea#input_15 {
        background-image : url('https://shots.jotform.com/welvin/icon/info2.png') !important;
        background-repeat : no-repeat !important;
        padding-left : 40px !important;
        background-size : 16px 16px !important;
        background-position : 10px 5px  !important;
    }

    You can remove the specific css and make it applicable to all textareas by default using the snippet below

    textarea {
        background-image : url('https://shots.jotform.com/welvin/icon/info2.png') !important;
        background-repeat : no-repeat !important;
        padding-left : 40px !important;
        background-size : 16px 16px !important;
        background-position : 10px 5px  !important;
    }

    Insert the CSS as highlighted in the image
