Can't type in text inputs in Firefox

    I'm dealing with an odd bug in Firefox where I can't type into the text input fields. Here's the page in question: http://www.greyowlinspections.com/contact/

    The textarea works fine, and the inputs show the focused style when I click on them or tab into them, but there's no cursor and it doesn't record anything I type. There's no javascript errors in the console, I'm not using any weird CSS hacks, and my google-fu didn't turn up anything relevant. Is this a browser bug? I haven't seen this on any of the other contact forms I've done. But it might be site-specific, because I created another form with just one input and it's doing the same thing: http://www.greyowlinspections.com/form/

    Thanks.

  2. This is a theme conflict. Something in your theme's formalize.css file is causing your issue. If you deactivate that file, then the inputs work properly. You can see my test screenshot below.

    Hope that points you in the right direction.

    Oh shoot, I forgot formalize was even installed on this site. Thanks for discovering that. Have a good one!

  4. No worries. Usually that kind of stuff shows up when using scripts that manipulate form fields. It's just something I look for right off the bat. Glad I could help out.
