The reason for button getting separated from input upon resize is because of display property inside your media query.

When screen resolution is less than 480px according to css input element display property is changed from inline-block to block

See your css below

@media only screen and (max-width: 480px)
.pure-form input:not([type]), .pure-form input[type=text], .pure-form input[type=password], .pure-form input[type=email], .pure-form input[type=url], .pure-form input[type=date], .pure-form input[type=month], .pure-form input[type=time], .pure-form input[type=datetime], .pure-form input[type=datetime-local], .pure-form input[type=week], .pure-form input[type=number], .pure-form input[type=search], .pure-form input[type=tel], .pure-form input[type=color], .pure-form label {
margin-bottom: .3em;
display: block;

Add the below css to your stylesheet

@media only screen and (max-width: 480px){
.pure-form input[type=text]{



This query makes it inline-block even after resize
