1. You've responded to this yourself
2. The text fields are only different sizes if you're using a variable-width font. The issue is very simple -- if you have a <input size="10"> and you type 10 'W's in it in IE, you will only see about 6 of the 'W's. In Mozilla you'll see 10. Since there is no "correct" way to size input boxes with variable-width font, we picked one that works. rods has been working on figuring out the crazy way IE determines the sizing so we can emulate it if we wish, but he has had little success so far. (See <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=44467> and <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=43847>)
As for your comments on Steve Gibson's site I seem to recall the bug you filed on that. The JS he uses for that cool effect is using IE-only DOM. If he just used the W3C DOM it would work in both Mozilla and IE.
