    Unable to type anything into the field

    Asked by lipbang on November 18, 2016 at 04:47 PM

    Randomly all my form fields have been changed to white text. Even though the style editor and CSS are stating black.

    No one can fill out my form now. Please help ASAP, we were getting ready to launch a contest. Thanks.

    The following CSS does not work in the same manner in different browsers. Please remove it and then re-check the form.

    .form-textbox {
    padding : 18px 7px;

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.

    It must have been a temp glitch. I didn't change anything. Within 1 hour everything was back to normal.

    It must have been a temporary glitch. Within an hour of posting this the form went back to normal.
    I didn’t change anything and it was suddenly working again.

    The input text is fine in Google Chrome, but in Firefox the issue still persists since mentioned browsers handle the input paddings differently.

    I would like to suggest removing the padding, or fixing the fields' height by adding the next CSS.

    .form-textbox {
    height: auto;

    Thank you.
