    Strange Lines/Box Appear at the Top of the Form on Google Chrome!

    Asked by antoniooi on April 02, 2012 at 04:15 PM

    Hi Guys,

    After deleting a couple of headers, page breaks and fields, these strange lines began to appear at the top of my form:

    Only on Google Chrome!

    I tested with Firefox without any issue, only on Google Chrome. I tried deleting the existing header and recreate a new again also no luck. Please help.

    Hmm....OK.....thanks a lot. No more lines when I open it the next day (today). Must be something wrong with the Chrome.

    Hi Guys,

    Please refer to this form:


    The lines/box appear on both Firefox and Chrome now. My customer just complained for me that he could not enter the 'Company Name' because the box is blocking him from filling up the text box. Please help to look into issue.

    Please checkout this screenshot and find out why the lines can be generated on your Free Text (HTML) field:


    Thanks! This is urgent!

    Hi, I took a look at the page, it seems the two boxes are the body of a facebook widget iframe.

    Did you add a Facebook connect widget through a free-text (HTML) field? If so maybe you should try to see if there's anything wrong in there.

    No, I don't add Facebook widget on that HTML field. But I do integrate this form with Facebook. My HTML is just pure simple HTML, nothing much in there, just an info.

    OK, but in your screenshot you can see that the facebook widget is included in <li class="form-line" id="id_89">.

    This is the piece of code that puts the boxes there: <div style="position: absolute; top: -2000px; ">


    Maybe this can help you out.

    Could this be the bug of JotForm? I afraid that I just can't simply remove this piece of code which may screw up my Facebook integration and positioning of the widget. I didn't customize anything on both my FB integration widget and HTML field.

    Can somebody from JotForm reply to this issue again? My customer has just made the payment and they can't do anything else on this form! Please help! Although I keep telling them that the box SHOULD NOT prevent them from entering their data but they keep telling me that they can't! I really have no clue now....please help....

    fairfinance, thanks for your help anyway! Appreciate that!

    One of our developers will look into this issue but I can't say when that would be possible.

    Hi Antonio,

    I see this issue has been assigned to one of our developers. They will reply to this thread once the problem is completely fixed.

    While waiting for the actual fix on this, you can remove the unknown boxes by injecting the following code to your form:
