User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040913 Firefox/0.10.1  and also Mozilla 1.7.3

With a Cisco Linksys BEFSX41 router, when you go to the MAC address clone page 
(the page where you can define the MAC address for the router), the boxes 
around the numbers are too small. This causes the MAC address numbers to be 
partially hidden. The evil IE displays the numbers properly. This problem 
applies both to Firefox and to regular Mozilla.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Hook up your computer to a Linksys BEFSX41 router.
2. Open up Mozilla Firefox or even Mozilla 1.7.3.
3. Go to   
4. When you try to set your own MAC address notice how it's hard to read each 
two digit number set because the box around them is too small.
Actual Results:  
The numbers are hard to read.

Expected Results:  
The boxes around the numbers should be large enough to show the numbers in them.

Here on Windows I can't reproduce what I see on the screenshots. No matter wether I try Luna, Aero or Classical.
