"Size of the post box" input box too small

Reported by: tysontate's profile tysontate Owned by: masquerade's profile masquerade
Milestone: Priority: low
Severity: trivial Version: 2.0

On MacOS X 10.4.3 using Safari 2.0.2, the input text area for the "Size of the post box" input in Options -> Writing is too narrow. In Firefox 1.5, it fits "10" just fine, however.

This is my first ticket (sorry if I break any "rules"!) so I'm not exactly sure how to create a diff/patch, but the change is pretty easy: Change the "size" attribute of the input box from 2 to 3 or 4.

Altering the width to 2em instead of 2.5em seems to be enough in my installation of Safari, and it creates less extra space in other browsers that are rendering the ems wider.

Issue present on Safari 2.0.4 too, while Firefox looks fine on OSX.

Setting the related value to 2em works perfectly on OSX, but show "wide" on firefox.
I'm guessing it's something font related.

Using ex units doesn't help either, px is fixed. My siggestion is to keep it like it is. OSX is the smallest userbase.
