    I have tried submitting your JotForm and was able to submit the form without any errors. Are you still experiencing any issues with the form? I see that there are few widgets on your JotForm. Please open the wizard of the widgets and update them and see if that makes any difference. Also, please make sure that the widgets are not required fields on your JotForm.

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know. We will be happy to assist.

    I also made a test submission on your form and was not able to see any problems:


    Perhaps we are missing something here. Are your users or you have a special way of filling out the form? Is there a specific step by step? Does it involved multiple forms in the process?

    Have you tried using a different browser? Is the problem specific to a browser or it happens to all of the browsers you have? We are unable to replicate the issue and the form is actually receiving submission, I see it has submissions dated this July 4, 5 and 6.

    i did use different browsers, still the same, but here is an UPDATE:

    the error appears only when I fill in the Email address that has been already used before, for example my regular clients get the error because but new client don't? is it something related to cookies? maybe


    when I use a (new email address) which has been never used in the form before than I don't get the error.  kan you try fill in the form with my email ( and see if you get the error ? please

    I just submitted a test form in your site and did not have any problems submitting the form. I used the email you provided and it went through fine.

    By your description, it sounds that you have enable the UNIQUE QUESTION enable. I have reviewed and it is disable (no fields selected). I am assuming that you have already removed this.

    If you are still having problems, please let us know. We will be glad to help.

    I also cloned your form to test it and was unable to reproduce the error, even when submitting the form multiple times with the same data.  I was also able to submit the form when completely blank.  

    If you are creating a new copy, it is possible to copy fields from one form to another. You can achieve this with our app "Field Manager":
