Why is Google Chrome not respecting my display:inline-block property?

I want to create a form in a DIV and I would like the DIV to be no bigger than the elements in the form. So I have crafted this as my DIV

    <div id="content">
      <div id="userNotificationForm">
<form class="new_user_notification" id="new_user_notification" action="/user_notifications" accept-charset="UTF-8" method="post"><input name="utf8" type="hidden" value="&#x2713;" /><input type="hidden" name="authenticity_token" value="nZlQSEjw1o/7DxxOAUmFWJiXr5ZqPodX2tBcCs2qshqLVhM8U/WXuBWocICXDmYOoBnAjhvrEIat972+SkQKEQ==" />

  <div class="field">
    <label for="user_notification_price">Label</label> <span class="required">*</span> <br>
    <input size="30" type="text" name="user_notification[price]" id="user_notification_price" />

  <div class="actions buttonContainer">
    <input type="submit" name="commit" value="Submit" id="submit" class="button btn" data-disable-with="Submit" />


and assigned it the "display:inline-block" property, thinking that would make the form as big as needed, and no bigger.

#userNotificationForm {
  background-color: #fff;
  display: inline-block;
  text-align: left;

This works fine on Mac Firefox -- , but notice on Mac Chrome the text box bleeds over the edge of the form container (the white section). Ditto for Safari. How do I make the container include the textbox completely, as Firefox seems to do?

Your CSS does not specify any explicit width, neither for the form, nor for the div and input element. But the HTML markup specifies a size attribute for the input element which makes Chrome, Chromium and Internet Explorer 11 compute a width larger than the parent element's widht, so that the input field will overflow outside.

Specify a width: 100% (relative to its parent element) on input[type=text] to make it fit the form.

input[type=text] {
  width: 100%;
  /* ... */

Here is an updated fiddle that works in the current browsers (Chrome 60, Firefox 55, and Internet Explorer 11):
