How to display html text box as blue square, and also, indented with yellow background?

How do I display a text box so the box is indented in.  On the code below the first two text boxes are indented in(under last Name); however, the other text boxes show up as a blue square and are not indented in.  The code is on the same page, and the text boxes are displayed differently.  What causes one text box to come out as a blue square with no indentation, and the other two to come out as a square with indentation and a yellow background.

<form>      
<table>      
<tr>
<td>      
Last Name:
</td>
<td> <!-- The next two lines come out indented with a yellow background on the text box -->
<input type="text" name="firstname">
<input type="text" name="lastname">
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>      
Company:
</td>
<td><!-- The next line comes out as a blue box with no indentation -->
<input type="text" name="company">
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td align="right">      
Unique Identifier:
</td>
<td> ><!-- The next line comes out as a blue box with no indentation -->
<input type="text" name="uniqueidentifier">
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>&nbsp;</td>      
<td>&nbsp;</td>      
</tr>      
<tr>
<td>
</td>
<td>            
<input type="submit" value="Advance Search">
</td>
</tr>
</table>
</form>

Can you send us the complete HTML for the page, with the CSS file(s) involved?
With the code you sent, there is no reason for any of the boxes to be either yellow, blue, or different from one another.

it is the property of the browser(or any toolbars like google, yahoo etc., installed in your browser)

The common text boxes like email, firstname, lastname etc., will be highlighted in yellow background... you can try changing the name of the text boxes to avoid it...

Then I like jawahar's explanation, because I don't see any reason for the boxes not to be white like in normal unstyled HTML.

I have made changes to the page, and somehow the labels first name, last name, and zip are causing the text box formats to change.  This example is different from above, but it's the exact same concept.

Notice how the label does not say "First Name" it says "irst Name".  Is there anything I can do about this?

Well, if it IS a toolbar component doing this, then this should only happen in your machine or in machine's of people with that toolbar.
Not much you can normally do, but I don't think you should worry about it.

If you need to test locally without this happening, try using a different browser (ie. Firefox, or Opera)

It is not the problem with your code...
Just try going to google.com/adsense... You can notice the userid text box in yellow color( Sorry if it doesnt ;-)  )..  It normally occurs.. even if you apply CSS, it will be yellow color only...
