Strange interaction when trying to fill a Web Application's text box?

Hey everyone,

I am extremely new to the robotics studio, but also really excited to be working with it! Please bear with me if the following question is silly.

I seem to be having an issue when I try to fill text boxes with login data on certain sites. The data appears to fill correctly and press the Next/Login button (depending on the site), but fails as the info entered seems to be placed underneath any prompt text in the text field. I have included pictures of an example from the following site:

I have ensured that I have interrogated, what I believe, are the right objects on the site, even using the HTML tag interrogation method to make sure I select the box's input field. It is only until I manually input a keystroke into the text box that the prompt text disappears like normal, leaving my input. Hitting the next button then proceeds to the next login step correctly.

I don't experience this issue on every site, but have replicated it on sites similar to the example, like Gmail's login page. As a result, I have come to the conclusion that I am doing something wrong, so I hope someone can help me!

Thank you for any help you can provide.
