Can't select the first field (4 posts)

    I created the form and it works just fine, but I'm having issues with not being able to select the first field with a cursor in a contact form. This only seems to happen if the first field is either a name field or an email field.

    The name field id is set to "your-name" so it shouldn't have any issues.

    The only way that someone can use that field is if they select the next field and then tab back up to the first field. I had to reorganize the fields to put an address field first just so the client could use it properly.

    This all seems to have happened after upgrading to the most recent version.

    Anyone have a fix?

    Where can we see the form?

    It's working fine the way it is now, but if I move the name field to the top of the form, you can't select it with the cursor.

    In addition, I took all the sizes off during the testing and used CSS to assign the size.

    I am experiencing the same problem, only on IE.
    The form is here.


    Sometime I am unable to focus on the first field and sometimes it becomes readonly after entering a value and focusing out.

    Any help please? Thanks
