The issue here basically boils down to:

(1) We now respect border on text fields (just like FFX)
(2) In strict mode this border is excluded from the width (just like FFX)
(3) We have 1px padding on our text fields by default (this is not like FFX).

Firefox's text fields actually look like crap because they have too little

The site in question is clearly buggy in that it does nothing to override
padding, so it has no idea what those values might be for a given form control.

Here are our options:
(1) Remove the padding to be more like Firefox.  Would result in ugly controls
that don't match AppKit.
(2) Remove the padding only if the AppKit look gets turned off.  I still think
this results in ugly controls if you end up styling the border.
(3) Ignore the strict mode box-sizing behavior and just make form controls
always use border-box box-sizing.  I actually think this is potentially a
really good idea. It does not match Firefox, but I think it might match WinIE
(and make more sense to users of form controls).
(4) Evangelize the site.
