Can't fill out forms on websites (optins, comments, etc.)


When I try to fill out email optin forms, or comments on certain blogs, I am unable to do so while using Firefox (like these sites: http://www.discovershareinspire.com/livehealthy and http://ww.trans-america.com) It won't let me fill in email address, name, etc.

The input fields actually work, you only see nothing because they have a height of 0px.
The cause seems to be the padding-tp and padding bottom that have a 14px value.
Changing padding-top and padding-bottom to 0px makes the placeholder text show and makes the input fields work.

.ois_10 input[type="text"] {
padding-bottom: 14px;
padding-left: 7px;
padding-right: 7px;
padding-top: 14px;
