Attached is a screenshot of an input field and you can see the small, blue border on the right hand side. Here's the CSS for that field:

 input.search_box {
margin-top:3px;
margin-left:1px;
width:113px;
height:17px;
outline:none;
}
 input.search_box:focus {
margin-top:3px;
margin-left:1px;
width:113px;
height:17px;
outline:none;
}

border:#fffffff; doesn't work in that it adds some definition to the field, even with a white border that makes it stand out from the rest of the search div and I'm trying to get the input field and the search button etc to blend in together.

What can I do to get rid of the blue border?

there is no screenshot attached. However, screenshots are not very useful.

If you can't share the link, then provide a fiddle (or similar)

You have outline:none but you don't have border:none.

you could try

border:0;

but without seeing the actual code I can't know if that's the right solution. I can't tell from a picture where in the code the border is coming from.

a link or a fiddle would be better.

As far as a link, it's an intranet site and while I might be able to reproduce it on my server, let's start with the code and we'll go from there:

Here's the HTML:
