Two things to try (and I have no idea whether they will work).

Firstly, the box is not , in fact, a textfield (although that’s how you have it set up)…wht not just change it to an <input type="email" name="email" required>?

Secondly, since it appears that the issue ‘goes away’ when the field receives focus why not add the autofocus attribute (whether you change it to an email field or not).

So…<input type="email" name="email" required autofocus="autofocus">
