Pre-populated URL's showing up as Hint/Example in Microsoft Internet Explorer

    I did some searching and couldn't find anyone else having this issue. I use a lot of pre-poluated URL's, which has never given me a problem. But, appearently. If the url pre-populates a field that has a hint in it, the pre-populated text becomes the hint instead of filling the field. Your help would be much appreciated.

     

    I have decided not to post a URL to my order form as I do not want it used, mostly because I would like this post kept public as I feel others may be having this issue.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    It seems that this problem is related to Internet Explorer. I was able to reproduce it, however, there is no such bug in Internet Explorer 10.

    In order to solve this issue you may simply remove "Hint Example" for your pre-populated fields.

    Please give it a try, and let us know if you need any further assistance.

    I had already removed the hints, but it's a shame. I dislike IE so much.

    Is this working fine now without hints? We are not in love with IE too :)
