For the Comcast TV Planner website, if you enter any lowercase characters with descenders (g, y, etc.), the descender part is cut off in the "Find a Show" search text input field. This only started with Firefox version 3. In all previous versions of Firefox, this text size / text cut off problem did not exist. So far, this is the only website where I have seen this.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to URL: http://tvplanner.comcast.net/#initView=grid,1224098704328 (this is my zip code for TV shows, but problem will work with any zip code for TV listings).
2. Enter lowercase text, with descenders, such as "y" or "g" etc. -- into the "Find a Show:" search box near the top of the page.

Actual Results:  
You will see that all lowercase characters with descenders have the descender cut off in this input field.

Expected Results:  
The entire text character, with descenders or not, should appear and be readable in the text input field (not cut off). This only started occurring in Firefox 3 -- was not a problem in previous Firefox versions.

This gives 17 (line-height) + 3 (padding) + 4 (border) = 24px required height [-moz-box-sizing: border-box] - something has to give.
