The link above shows a site we're working on, which has mouseover images for the top navigation. In IE7 these show fine, but in FF the last 3 items seem to move onto the next line but continue in the correct position horizontally.

I can't for the life of me figure out why this is happening.

Could someone please take a look?
.topNavWrap {
	width: 100%;
	height: 30px;
	margin: 0px 0px 10px 0px;
	background-color: #66FF00;
	}
	
.topNavWrap img {
	float: left;
	}
 
<div class="topNavWrap">
                <a href="#" onmouseout="MM_swapImgRestore()" onmouseover="MM_swapImage('home','','images/top-nav-home-on.png',1)"><img src="images/top-nav-home-off.png" alt="Homepage" name="home" width="165" height="30" border="0" id="home" /></a>
                <img src="images/top-nav-split.png" alt="Split" />
                <a href="#" onmouseout="MM_swapImgRestore()" onmouseover="MM_swapImage('services','','images/top-nav-services-on.png',1)"><img src="images/top-nav-services-off.png" alt="Services" name="services" width="152" height="30" border="0" id="services" /></a>
                <img src="images/top-nav-split.png" alt="Split" />
                <a href="#" onmouseout="MM_swapImgRestore()" onmouseover="MM_swapImage('portfolio','','images/top-nav-portfolio-on.png',1)"><img src="images/top-nav-portfolio-off.png" alt="Portfolio" name="portfolio" width="155" height="30" border="0" id="portfolio" /></a>
                <img src="images/top-nav-split.png" alt="Split" />
                <a href="#" onmouseout="MM_swapImgRestore()" onmouseover="MM_swapImage('clients','','images/top-nav-clients-on.png',1)"><img src="images/top-nav-clients-off.png" alt="Clients" name="clients" width="153" height="30" border="0" id="clients" /></a>
                <img src="images/top-nav-split.png" alt="Split" />
                <a href="#" onmouseout="MM_swapImgRestore()" onmouseover="MM_swapImage('workforus','','images/top-nav-work-for-us-on.png',1)"><img src="images/top-nav-work-for-us-off.png" alt="Work for us" name="workforus" width="166" height="30" border="0" id="workforus" /></a>
                <img src="images/top-nav-split.png" alt="Split" />
                <a href="#" onmouseout="MM_swapImgRestore()" onmouseover="MM_swapImage('contact','','images/top-nav-contact-on.png',1)"><img src="images/top-nav-contact-off.png" alt="Contact" name="contact" width="154" height="30" border="0" id="contact" /></a>
            </div>

Looks like your images are just too big for the width you set. Hard code the width of the top bar, adding a pixel each time to the width, starting at the width of tall the images added together.

I originally thought that the images were slightly too big, but if that's the case, why isn't it not just the last image that's on the new line, surely images 4 and 5 should still appear on the right line, as they fit, it's just the last one that wouldn't.

I've managed to resolve this by adding clear: both to the topNavWrap DIV.
