I understand that the issue that you have is indeed very frustrating. I did test it locally with the code that I suggested and it work as expected from my side. Here I attach my simplified runnable page that you can test and check how it goes. Can you please modify it in a way that demonstrates the issue that you have and send it back to me so I can inspect it and help you out?
