CSS quirk in IE/Firefox

Good day,

I'm having a small problem with my css and placement of a global navbar in my site.

Please look at this page in IE & Firefox and note the different position of the globalnav bar at the top of the page, just under the header banner.  You'll note that in one it sits inside of the #mastHead div and in firefox it sits just under the #mastHead div....

http://www.hfspools.com/

Visually, it's rendered correctly in IE, however, I am certain that its exactly the reverse as is with most CSS/IE quirks I come across. I am sure FF is rendering it correctly.

Anyhow, whatever help I can get I will gladly take!

Here's the css:

#masthead{
      margin: 0;
      padding: 10px 0px 0px 0px;
      border-bottom: 1px solid #cccccc;
      width: 100%;
}

#navBar{
      background-color: #ECF0F9;
      padding: 0px;
      margin-right: 73%;
/*      margin-bottom: 0;
      margin-left: 0;
*/      border-right-width: 1px;
      border-right-style: solid;
      border-right-color: #ccc;
      border-bottom-width: 1px;
      border-bottom-style: solid;
      border-bottom-color: #CCCCCC;
}

Here's the HTML:

<div id="masthead">
<a href="../index.php"><img src="../images/masthead.gif" alt="HornerXpress Financial Service" width="475" height="99" border="0" /></a>
<div id="globalNav">
  <a href="../pool/loan-center/benefits.php">Benefits of Financing</a> | <a href="../pool/loan-center/finance.php">Pool Financing</a> |
<a href="../pool/loan-center/home-improvement.php">Home Improvement Loans</a> | <a href="../pool/app/index.php">Apply
Now</a> |
<a href="../contactus.php">Contact Us</a> |
<a href="../index.php">Home</a></div>
<div id="globalPhone">877-HFS-POOL</div>
</div>

Thank you-

you need to add some clearing element after your #navBar:

<div class="clear">&nbsp;</div>

div.clear {
  height: 1px;
  margin-top: -1px;
  overflow: hidden;
}

... or you need to float your #masthead:

#masthead {
  float:left;
  background-color: #fff;
}

yes, i forgot the main part in my "div.clear" ruleset...  ;)

div.clear {
  height: 1px;
  margin-top: -1px;
  overflow: hidden;
  clear: both;
}

note that elements should never be empty... that's the reason for the &nbsp; and the more complex ruleset.
