    Can you email it to jotformsupport [at] gmail [dot] com please? 

    What version of IE is this happening on?

    Ok, I see the issue. 

    IE9 is reporting the form as an non-secure element on the page (which the user has to manually enable, see dialog at the bottom the page, or change a setting in his web browser)

    This is really odd as I am not on a https:// connection to Facebook in the first place. i.e All elements on the page are on unencrypted connection. 

    Anyway, I have changed the form link to use a secure URL:

    e.g

    <script type="text/javascript"src="https://secure.jotform.com/jsform/13055750337"></script>

    and that has rectified the issue. 

     

    Thanks for pointing out yet another IE eccentricity :)

    Figured it out. Had to set secure browsing to disabled.
