Sorry, it’s not my code. You’d need to open a support ticket to see if the developer is willing to make that change. In the mean time, your theme, or something else on your site, is deferring the running of the acf script until the page is completely loaded by adding “defer” to every script that is added to the page. The fastest solution would be if there is a way to turn this off for the acf scripts.
