Styling input[type=submit ], or how to tame vertical alignment in Firefox?

While attempting to style an input submit, I ran across an inconsistency in Firefox. The problem and solution are fully described on Stack Overflow and the code solution is below, simply add it to your reset/base CSS (That’s what I did anyway).

input::-moz-focus-inner /*Remove button padding in FF*/
{
    border: 0;
    padding: 0;
}

I don’t know why they added a pseudo class in Firefox on the inputs, if anyone knows the use of -moz-focus-inner, you’re welcomed to comment.

Thought of making a post because I spent quite some time on trying to make my buttons identical crossbrowser, so if I can prevent the trouble for anyone, it’s my pleasure :D

I actually did make the PhoneGap test app work using Eclipse, but I was rather disappointed at Eclipse’s poor support for the web technologies used while developing a PhoneGap app a.k.a. HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript and some server side language like PHP or RoR. continue reading
