Google Map Causing Form Saving Bugs

    I have a field group that asks for a location with a Google Map. I assign this to the User Register/Add/Edit forms. If you load the profile page and immediately try to navigate away, a popup box appears telling you that you have unsaved changes. I’m assuming this is because when the field loads, something inside the form element is changing so the browser tries to stop that.

    If I remove the google map field, the problem goes away.

    Normally, this wouldn’t be too much of an issue, but on the front facing version of the form, having little bugs like that can really confuse users.

    Thanks!

    Here’s a copy of my .JSON file for that group.

    
    {
        "key": "group_541f91135ca1d",

    5.0.9 update seems to have resolved this issue. Definitely gonna keep an eye on it though for a little while.
