    Hi Todd,

    We have this problem as well in Firefox. Seems you have some weird CSS that is messing things up.

    #sfw-respond form input[type="text"], #sfw-respond form textarea {
    -moz-box-sizing: border-box;
    font-size: 0.857143rem;
    line-height: 1.71429;
    padding: 0.714286rem;
    width: 100%;
    }

    The -mox-box-sizing is whats messing it up. It pretty much hides what the user is typing so they cant see it working. So I went into the settings and Disabled COmment Form Generation, and it totally screws up the theme where its either disable the plugin or keep this broken CSS.

    Definitely broken. I've received too many complaints from valid users. Changed and rechanged settings.

    I've loved using Spam Free WordPress, but if my readers can't comment -- it's simply not worth it. Time look for an alternative (again) and move on!

    Hi Todd... with all due respect.. it wasnt her theme or my theme that messed it up. It was yours.

    #sfw-respond form input[type="text"], #sfw-respond form textarea {
        -moz-box-sizing: border-box;
        font-size: 0.857143rem;
        line-height: 1.71429;
        padding: 0.714286rem;
        width: 100%;
    }

    And here was my fix....

    #sfw-respond form input[type="text"], #sfw-respond form textarea {
        -moz-box-sizing: inherit;
        font-size: 14px;
        line-height: 24px;
        padding: 5px;
        width: 75%;
    }

    I've had a free license. It's the first thing I did after installing. I always go through options thoroughly when I start using a new plugin, or any software.

    Why is this marked resolved?

    This isnt resolved and now there are new issues popping up.

    Now the HTML gets messed up. If you have "remove URL field" checked, it will break your HTML and ruin the layout. We had a big issue with our footer being rendered in the content area due to a missing close div tag or something. We disabled it to resolve it.

    I have to admit the plugin itself works great to prevent spam, but the front end development aspect of it needs a lot of work.
