Resizing Firefox Search Bar

Firefox won't let resize the search bar. I've followed these instructions, and nothing. Any ideas? I'm on XP using 1.0 Preview.

This isn't exactly as elegant as getting the userchrome.css modification to work, but it should get the job done:

Resize Search Box Extension

I have the same problem and tried that extension and it doesn't seem to work.

Try adding this line as well (in addition to the modification for #search-container, I mean):
#searchbar {
-moz-box-flex: 400 !important;

Any luck?

This worked fine with earlier versions, but stopped working with Firefox 1.0 PR. Bummer.

But for me, (on WinXP), it works with j.edwards' modification! Thanks!

So to sum up, put this in userChrome.css:

#search-container {
  -moz-box-flex: 400 !important;
#searchbar {
  -moz-box-flex: 400 !important;
