<input type=text> form element doesn't display the size attribute properly. The size is always 4 characters larger than what was specified. for example: <form name="f"><input type="text" name="t" size="3"></form> The form text field that appears on screen allows 7 characters to be input before "spilling over". The above snippet is all that's required to duplicate this problem; this is the simplest case scenario. Using M9 from the file mozilla-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.gz

reassigned to rods. Rod has recently changed all the text control sizing code, and this may already be fixed.
I tested the above snipet and it comes out one pixel short with GFX rendering than with Nav 4.0. I'll look for that one pixel
Summary: <input type=text> form element doesn't display size attribute properly → <input type=text> (size is off by one pixel) form element doesn't display size attribute properly

We have duplicated the Nav algorithms for NavQuirks mode. Any mismatch on size now was to do with the font metrics and the way Gecko attempts to match fonts in NavQuirks - Fixed
