From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; m18) Gecko/20001027 BuildID: 2000102704 I have looked for this in bugzilla but have not been able to find it anywhere. When you create a FORM tag and uses size="" mozilla renders the box wrong. If you look at the url I have written you will see a example of the problem on a page I was creating. Mozilla does not give the FORM the right size if you do not use size tag. And if you do use it and have a table that is 150 in wide and creates a FORM with size="15" it will make it way to big. IE renders this correctly. Also when you do not use the size tag. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Create a form in a table Actual Results: mozilla renders wrong. Expected Results: Render like Internet Explore
I'm looking at the page in both IE 5.0 and Mozilla at the moment. The only difference is that Mozilla uses a different default size for input elements of type text that do not have a size specified. If by the "incorrect" rendering you refer to the black rectangles, IE shows those as well for me.
Changing Summary. Old Summary:Form size tag renders wrong. The sample url uses transitional DTD, so I think it means that mozilla is rendering in quirks mode. Also, your font is Arial, a sans-serif font. This means that mozilla, in quirky mode, will render the text input even larger. This has been a well discused topic (bug 25657 and as early as bug 2486). Suggest INVALID since bug 25657 was marked as such.
Summary: Form size tag renders wrong. → default input type=text renders too large without any size declared
