Bootstrap: How to increase the width of the search input box

Hello,
  I am trying to add a search box like google input box in my application  but I cannot get it to work in FF. Here is my code

<div class="container">
	<div class="row">
	    <div class="col-md-8">
	        <form class="navbar-form navbar-left" role="search">
	         <div class="input-group">
	            <input type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="Search for awesome stuff">
	            <span class="input-group-btn"><button type="submit" class="btn btn-default">Search</button></span>
	          </div>
	        </form>
	    </div>
	</div>
</div>

Open in new window


In IE11 and Crome I get a bigger search input box, However the input box appears smaller in FF

In you CSS, if you change the .navbar-form width to 100% within the 768px media query, that should work.

@media (min-width: 768px) {

.navbar-form {
  width: 100%;
  padding-top: 0;
  padding-bottom: 0;
  margin-right: 0;
  margin-left: 0;
  border: 0;
  -webkit-box-shadow: none;
  box-shadow: none;
}

}

What is the CSS attributed to the input? My guess would be the property box-sizing. It would look something like this:

box-sizing: border-box;

Open in new window


If that is the case, you would need to add in the Mozilla-prefix for it to work. The new CSS would look like this:

box-sizing: border-box;
-moz-box-sizing: border-box;

Open in new window


Again, this is just a guess. IE and Chrome both recognize box-sizing while FF does not.

Did not work, This what I see in FF

In Firebug I see the correct width (default to screen width --centered)  for
div class="container">
	<div class="row">
	    <div class="col-md-8">

Open in new window


However,  the width shrink when I hover on this class
<form class="navbar-form navbar-left" role="search">

Open in new window


The CSS is

navbar-form {
    border: 0 none;
    box-shadow: none;
    margin-left: 0;
    margin-right: 0;
    padding-bottom: 0;
    padding-top: 0;
    width: auto;

Open in new window

}
this is in bootstrap.css file (line 4331)

Thanks for your help

Got a link to the page?
Bootstrap would have already reset all margins, padding and box-sizing so that wouldn't be the cause.

As Cathal asked, do you have a link to the page?

I don't have a link to the page but I attach my simple HTML file . The stylesheet/js are linked directly from the bootstrap and jquery site.


You will see the search box appears bigger in IE and Chrome .
