Form does not look the same when using Safari versus Chrome

    I created my form on my PC using Chrome.  However, I just looked at it on my mac laptop using safari & the fields are different lengths, are on different lines and the tab does not go to every consecutive field like when I use Chrome with my PC.  This happens when I log on to jot form or when I open the form using a link.  I can still complete the form, but would like it to behave the same regardless of the browser/computer.

    I was able to see the problem on your jotform as well.


    To fix, please open the form in your Form Designer. And update the width of the Textbox. 

    See image below for guide


    you can test also my test form on your browsers to check if it is working as intended.

    Let us know if issue persist.

    Thank you but I still don't understand.  When I view the form via Chrome or Explorer, it is correct. The Full Name field is the correct length and the other fields line up correctly on the lines.  However, when I view it in Safari on my mac laptop, the fields are messed up.  it does not matter if I view it via the link or the embedded form on the website.  The first picture below shows what the form looks like when using Chrome or Explorer and the second picture shows what the form looks like when viewing it with Safari.
