Fillable PDF No Longer Fillable

I've created a fillable PDF form in Acrobat Pro (saved it as a Reader Extended PDF) but once I upload it to my website, it is no longer fillable... what am I doing wrong? I've done this with dozens of other forms in the past and been successful so I'm not sure if some update has changed what I need to do. Any help is appreciated.

Both forms are fillable with Adobe Acrobat and Acrobat Reader.

How did you test it? Did you open the file in a browser window, by any chance? Or on a mobile device?

I downloaded it from the website and opened it in Acrobat and discovered that the fields that I created as fillable no longer were.

"saved it as a Reader Extended PDF"

This is useless since Acrobat Reader XI (11) and all later versions allows to fill and save any PDF form without restriction.
