I think you're confused.  The rule you cite above (of A + B + A = 2A + B) is
satisfied even after the changes.  The text fields in the file you attached
have borders and padding that you have not removed.  You have many options for
fixing this:

(1) You can explicitly specify -webkit-box-sizing: border-box (along with
-moz-box-sizing: border-box) to make width specified in CSS include the
(2) You can switch to quirks mode by removing your doctype.
(3) You can explicitly remove the border/padding from the textfields in
question by adding border/padding declarations with 0 values to your CSS rules.

The non-overridable internal padding is a red herring that I should not have
mentioned.  It is transparent to you and not relevant to your problem.

With this change, we are now consistent with both Firefox and WinIE.
