Because they don't implement what the spec says.

And _that_, at least in part, is because the spec went to CR without 
actually specifying the things it needs to specify (like how the silly 
thing should work).  It _still_ doesn't specify how box-sizing interacts 
with the CSS 2.1 algorithm for determining sizes of replaced elements; 
issues have been raised about it, but no useful response from the 
working group so far.

I would be extremely surprised if two implementations written based on 
the current spec were interoperable, and even more surprised if any two 
of Opera, Gecko, and Webkit are.
