I just updated to from Bootstrap 2.3 to Bootstrap 3.0 to style my page.  Odd thing is happening,  the search box has really rounded corners when I open on a tablet or phone.  But, the box is square on a laptop.  Any ideas what is going on?

<input type="search" class="form-control search-width" auto-complete="true" placeholder="Search" ui-items="names" ui-update="filterItems" ng-model="searchText">

Check your CSS. Did you open it with IE on your laptop?? Try another browser like firefox on the laptop to see if it happens

I opened in Firefox and Safari on laptop... all is good.  I cleared cache on mobile browsers... all is still bad.

Which one is the CSS for this class "form-control search-width"?? Also what did the box suppose to look like rounded-corners or square?? Though that you say that the problem was on the laptop and not on the mobile devices.. Check the browser engine on the mobile device to see with different render engine for the browser.

Could <input type="search"> vs. <input type="text"> render differently in mobile browsers?

It is supposed to have rounded corners and It works on the laptop and I tried it on my android browser http://jsbin.com/OQoKETe/1/edit and all is good.   By good, I mean rounded corners.

When you updated bootstrap, did you just change the css and js files?  Did you see you need to change all of your classes as well?

Sure enough.  <input type="search"> renders differently in iOS than <input type="text">.  I changed to <input type="text"> and fixed the problem.
