Not able to add dropdown field [RESOLVED]

I’m not able to add a dropdown anywhere in my form.
Once I drag the field to my form, it freezes all other actions. To solve this I need to save the form and then it resets itself so I can continue (without any dropdowns that I need)

Ask your web host to check the site logs. A security rule on the server hosting the site will be configured incorrectly, resulting in the field contents triggering a forbidden error, which will be preventing the ajax request that handles adding the field from completing.

Our webhost provider has indeed found some errors – see bellow – what would be the next step?

“select” is expected there, it’s the value of the field “type” property. They’ll need to adjust their regex.
