Clicking on Adobe Form Fields does not allow for filling

When using adobe forms (not just the one pictured but the two forms I use regularly) I've been finding that when I click on a field, instead of a cursor appearing and being able to type, instead the form highlights (darker blue) and a small window comes up with "fill in the form fields" greyed out and "request e-signature" as my only option. If I tab back and forth through the fields I can add text normally. This is over multiple forms, and I believe when it started happening it was only happening some of the time, but now happens every time. I have been using both forms for a couple of years, and I had a colleague test the same form out on her computer and it works normally for her. This makes me suspect it is something with my settings, but searching through my settings and the internet have gotten me nowhere. 

The photo included is of the result of left clicking on a field.

This is caused by a bug in the latest version of Acrobat and Reader. We're all waiting for Adobe to solve it...
