"Wide" widgets are no longer supported

With the merge of MP6, the widgets component brought along a few !important styles that forced widgets to fit within their sidebar. While I was the one who did this, and think wide widgets are the devil, we'll need to allow widgets to break out of their sidebar as we always have.

The patch above removes the !important styles that were overriding the widget width, fixes a missing border-bottom from widgets when dragged and expanded, and removes the extraneous 30px of width that were previously added to expanded widgets.
