Problem with Text Field height in Firefox

    I'm running Firefox version 1.5.0.6 and when I load an html file
    containing the code shown below, although both the text field and the
    button are defined as 24 pixels in height, the text field is displayed
    30 pixels tall. In Internet Explorer they display as specified.

    Any ideas why Firefox is adding 6 pixels to the height of the text
    field?
