    The problem lies on how the browser renders the CSS values, it differs from browser to browser. Please add this custom CSS code on your form so that the text inside the textbox will fully appear.

    .form-textbox {
    height: 55px !important;

    Here's a guide on how to inject custom CSS code on the form. Hope this works. Let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you.

    You could also make the text within the box smaller.  Here is the code to add to do so:

    .form-textbox {
        font-size : 13px !important;

    That should allow it to fit.

    I'm getting the same thing.  I tried injecting the code...

    .form-textbox {
    height: 55px !important;

    but it still is hidden.  I also tried changing the width size in CSS but nothing happens.  

    The print screen below show the field that is hidden during the web page view.
