    Remove default dropdown arrow on Internet Explorer

    Asked by goquote on April 07, 2016 at 09:57 AM

    Hi There,


    IE seems to hijack my form when it loads. It seems to add it's own menu on top of the jotform menu: see here:



    How can I stop this from happening?

    IE is very outdated now in terms of its resources used that's why new CSS features are not rendered properly. However, I understand that there are still people using it so the following fix should help.

    If you want to remove the default dropdown arrow on IE10+, add this CSS codes to your form.

    .form-dropdown::-ms-expand {

        display: none;

    Hope this helps!

    Can you have a look to see if it is injected properly (screenshot) 


    Still no change.


    The form is embedded on "intapage" if that make a difference

    Hi there,

    Making a little change on my colleague's CSS makes it work on IE. Please, see the last version of the CSS rule:


    select::-ms-expand {

        display: none;



    I have already added it to your form and test it, it is hiding the dropdown arrow on IE properly. Please, see the screenshot from the below:


    For further assistance, please do let us know.
