-webkit-appearance rule should be removed from the CSS

The -webkit-appearance rule used in customize-control.css is not supported properly on all browsers and in some cases might make certain layouts impossible. Please see the MDN article about it:


As mentioned there, even the "none" value will have different behavior on different browsers. In my case, it forces the element to wrap to the next line on Chrome, and the only way to go around this is to delete the rule directly in the WordPress CSS.

Well unless you lend me your time machine I can't provide screenshots of something I was working on three years ago :-)

All I know is that for sure the rule "-webkit-appearance" should be removed from the CSS because it doesn't work well, and once it's set it cannot be overridden by the user. As the post said, my fix was to remove it directly from the WordPress CSS.
