Unable to type in textbox

OS: Windows 7 professional 64-bit Operating System
PsychoPy version: 2020.2.10
Standard Standalone: yes

What are you trying to achieve?: My experiment has a loop with questions that require typed responses. Each response is followed by feedback informing the participant as to whether their response is incorrect or correct. When I pilot my experiment online, the text-box does not allow me to type anything into the response field. Here is the link to my public repo: Ashley L Miller / PAprobe_test · GitLab

What did you try to make it work?: Please note that I am new to PsychoPy… I have the newest version of PsychoPy Builder installed, but I tried running the experiment with version 2020.2.3.

What specifically went wrong when you tried that?: When I run the experiment on my local, I can type responses into the response field (yet I cannot do so when piloting the task online). On my local, the program exits abruptly near the end of the task when participants are typing responses. Below is the PsychoPy script I get when generating the program on my computer:
