Why the form validation does not work on Safari ?

I tried not to load the JHTML::_(behavior.formvalidator)

I load the fields from the XML file


With this result

<input id="jform_title" class="form-control required" type="text" aria-required="true" required="required" value="" name="jform[title]">

This result contains the attributes of validation aria-required="true" required="required" that I would not use

How do I turn off html5fallback.js and use a different library of validation ?

The required="required" is standard HTML5 validation, - the html5fallback.js is just a polyfill for those browsers that do not support html5 validations.

To answer your question add novalidate to your <form> markup:

<form novalidate>

This turns off html5 validation.
