    Based on what you have mentioned I believe that you have opened the page on your own local computer instead of on a website?

    The reason why I think this is because the error you have mentioned indicates that the form had tried to open something over file protocol. Since you say that it happened on the submission, it is most likely that it is not being called over http:// protocol, but over file:// protocol instead.

    Do let us know what is the link to the page where you have embed the page, but also, since I see that you have 2 threads in regards to this, this one and the: http://www.jotform.com/answers/615248 I would like to ask you to only reply back to this one in order for us to properly assist you.

    Thank you.
