    Hi Stephen,

    We are using FES for the submission form for our events. Since we imported venues from another system, we have a very large list of venues. About 3000 of them. Still this works fine in Chrome. However in Firefox the “Select A Venue” dropdown hangs up making it impossible for users to submit events in Firefox. Here’s the live link where you can see this in action.

    Is there any way to fix this for Firefox?

    One solution I was wondering was if we could have a text box where users start typing the venue of their event and the system could then fetch only the relevant venues, like Google Search suggestions. Is that feasible? Suggestions welcome…

    Hi Sadik,

    Which version of Firefox are you using? The drop-down worked fine for me. I’m using a fairly old version of Firefox: 45.0.2.

    As for the auto-complete search, it is possible, but not really for the plug-in. The reason being that it requires styling by the plug-in which might conflict with the theme, or any changes existing users have made.

    You could however, using jQuery autocomplete and convert the dropdown into a field that allows the user to search for the venue: https://jqueryui.com/autocomplete/
