Button span adding extra padding in FF

On my page here in the right nav, the first button uses a button class and the second 'submit' uses an 'a'.

Not sure why, but in FF the first button for 'search' is adding extra padding around the span containing text.

If someone could check maybe in an inspector as it's easy to see?

Here's the CSS:

.button {
white-space: nowrap;
color: #ECECEC;
padding: 0;
position: relative;
outline: none;
overflow: visible;
cursor: pointer;
border: 1px solid #999;
border: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2) 1px solid;
border-bottom: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.4) 1px solid;
-webkit-box-shadow: 0 1px 2px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2);
-moz-box-shadow: 0 1px 2px rgba(0,0,0,.2);
box-shadow: 0 1px 2px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2);
background: -moz-linear-gradient(
 center top,
 rgba(255, 255, 255, .1) 0%,
 rgba(0, 0, 0, .1) 100%
 );
background: -webkit-gradient(
 linear,
 center bottom,
 center top,
 from(rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.1)),
 to(rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.1))
 );
filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorStr='#19FFFFFF', EndColorStr='#19000000');
-ms-filter: "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorStr='#19FFFFFF', EndColorStr='#19000000')";
-moz-user-select: none;
-webkit-user-select: none;
-khtml-user-select: none;
user-select: none;
}
.button, .button span.text, .button span {
display: inline-block;
-webkit-border-radius: 0px;
-moz-border-radius: 0px;
border-radius: 0;
text-align: center;
}

.button, .button span.text, .button span {
display: inline-block;
-webkit-border-radius: 0px;
-moz-border-radius: 0px;
border-radius: 0;
text-align: center;
}
.button span {
position: relative;
color: #FFF;
text-shadow: 0 1px 1px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.25);
border-top: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.2) 1px solid;
padding: 4px 0;
text-decoration: none;
text-align: center;
white-space: nowrap;
width: 100%;
line-height: 1.6 !important;
text-shadow: 0px -1px 0px #333;
font-family: ebrima bold;
text-transform: lowercase;
font-weight: bold;
}

Open in new window


Any ideas appreciated

Screen capture from Firefox 24.0I assume this is the button you're referring to. Is this NOT what you expect it to look like?

The text "GO" in the button is pushed outside the visible area of the button by a text-indent of 125% (hidetext class). Because the span is given a "block" display value (searchGlass class), overflow hidden (hidetext class), and a width of 15px (searchGlass class), the text is cut off from view.

I highly recommend to download the free firebug extension for Firefox so you can see this for yourself.

Add:

button::-moz-focus-inner {
     border: 0
}


(this is a FF specific issue)

Sorry Gary - I made a mistake before thinking this was a different question as I was clearing through some others and had different tabs open, and also requested assistance... Gary, you were right - many thanks, it saved me lots of hassle.
