    This is probably related to the length and the number of configurable list widget in the form. I have now forwarded this thread to our developers so they can further check and advise us of this matter. If there are updates, you should know it in this thread.

    We took a look at your form - there's nothing programatically wrong with it - its just that you have 70 configurable list widgets. 

    This is one of our heaviest widgets because it packs a lot of features - it was actually designed to shorten forms by design; dynamically introducing new fields and field types on the fly  - it behaves much like a form within a form. 

    So if you have a fair number of configurable list widgets on your form, lag should be expected as your browser pours through each widget code and loads resources in succession


    We would advice that you consider scaling down your form design, or splitting your form into multiple forms (which can later be automatically linked through the Thank You URL). 

    We're happy to help - please let us know what you wanted to accomplish in a nutshell - and we'll offer efficient alternatives/designs that you might consider. 

    Thanks - and we look forward to your response.
