When you add an attachment to a message and then remove it, the width of the attachment pane shrinks a bit. This is from bug 630759, and the fix should be easy.

Here's a fix. I can test this if you feel like it's necessary, but since it's all CSS, I'm not too worried.

Review of attachment 559730 [details] [diff] [review]:

Hmm.  Do we really want the attachment pane with nothing in it to be the same size as the attachment pane with stuff in it?  It seems like a lot of space to take up with nothing.  On the other hand, there's probably not going to be a lot of stuff in the From/Cc/Bcc field either...

Okay, I'm going to say that having things not move around in a distracting manner tips the balance towards this change.  ui-r=me, and r=me cause the code is tiny and simple.  ;)

Checked in with a tiny change to the order of the CSS (and making the selector a bit more consistent with its neighbor):

This is, technically, a regression from 7 to 8, so asking for approval on aurora.
