Firefox - border around form goes full page width

  1. dansod


    I have this confirmed on both Windows and Mac using Firefox 11: the left side of the border around my form goes all the way out to the left side of the browser.

    How it should be:

    How it looks on Windows/OSX Firefox 11:

    On all other browsers it looks ok. And strangely enough: all other Gravity Forms on the site looks ok. It's just this one:

    that screws up.

    Does anyone have an idea what might be wrong? I use a theme called Modernize, but if that was the culprit it ought to break all browsers and all forms, wouldn't it?

    Any help is most appreciated!

  2. You have some invalid markup in that page. Every browser interprets invalid markup in a different way, and it's likely some browsers look OK and some look messed up.

    I see some extra markup being added to the Gravity Forms shortcode output. There are extra closing </ p > tags around the closing form tag and div. Here is a snippet of the source:

    <input type='hidden' name='gform_field_values' value='' /></div>

    Those closing < p > tags should not be present on line 2 and line 3. They are not output by Gravity Forms.

    Looks like Modernize is a Themeforest theme. They typically include the [raw] shortcode in all their themes and that can cause this extra markup to be added to the gravityforms shortcode output. Additional reading:

    The quick fix is to wrap the gravityforms shortcode in the [raw] shortcode. That prevents the Gravity Forms output from being modified. That is not a fix for the problem, just a workaround.
