Delicious Firefox plugin bug

My Curl Kanji applet was refusing to center itself correctly in Firefox as the window width was collapsed to the applet's width. Mystery padding was fixed to the left of the applet.

The applet resizing and centering behaved correctly in WIndows Chrome, IE, Opera and Safari.

The culprit?  Delicious bookmarking.

Delicious placed its icons left of the address field on the navigation toolbar.  Result: a minimum width of padding left forced into the page.

Turn off the Navigation Bar and the padding vanishes.

Move the tagging icons to the right of the address field and padding vanishes.
