[resolved] [Plugin: Contact Form 7] Captcha field on Contact 7 won't accept text (Firefox only) (6 posts)

    Contact 7 is great and has been working fine. But now the captcha input fields on my forms have stopped working in Firefox. I can input text on all form fields, but captcha field won't allow me to click and enter text.

    This is a problem in Firefox for Mac (I'm using Leopard) and XP. I tested it on Safari for Mac and it works properly; also tested on IE 7 for XP and it works properly.

    I upgraded to latest version of Contact Form 7 (1.7.6), but that didn't solve the problem. Tried clearing browser cache, but that didn't work. It seems like an issue with Contact Form 7, since it's a problem on both platforms.

    Has anyone else encountered this? Is there a solution? Thanks!

    I did learn the trick with this that if you're in the field above and TAB to the balky field, you can type in text. Otherwise, you can't click in the balky field and have it let you type text. ... What's weird is that the problem is only with the captcha field; all others work fine when clicking in them to start typing and accept text.

    steveouting,

    Can I see your form page? Sometimes misused <label> element causes such trouble.

    Takayuki,
    Here's an example form that exhibits this problem in Firefox:

    Thanks. You seems using <label> to wrap captcha as I thought. How about removing it?
