CSS Rounded Corner Box Graphics

I created four images to use in an attempt to do the thrashbox  instructed at www.vertexworks.com/tests/sidebox.  My thrashbox http://gotyips.com/elgg works well with the images I created when I use IE 7, but not with Firefox 3.  You will find the header separated from the main box in Firefox.  Any idea/reason why, please?

You are not the first person to EE with problems with this blue gneiss theme.  Just because it is on the web doesn't mean it is any good, or X-browser compatible.  I believe it getting a rounded box that works, not spending time trying to fix one that is badly coded, as this one seems to be.  I would look elsewhere, as even the rounded corners don't show any good (gray spotty background) in firefox.  Alternatives --

The last one has nice shadow -- all of them are ready to go, and better than this flaky blue gneiss theme

Guessing it has to do with this: padding: 22px 30px 5px; that is applied to the h2.

First of all, you should never use 3 values. Use 1, 2, or 4 values for padding.

1 value = all.
2 values = top/bottom left/right.
4 values = top, right, bottom, left.

3 values = bad code :-/ and "could" be causing the rendering error in FireFox. Try applying overflow: hidden to #boxhead.

I've tried 1/2/ and 4 values.  Different px values, including just 0, but still unable to bring the connection of he boxhead h2 to connect to the box, with Firefox.

Thanks Scrathcyboy - I'm working with your suggestion, and have attempted: http://www.roundedcornr.com/rc5.php

The problem I see and don't understand is why the top right corner is showing the side border as straight and not rounding?

Your help is appreciated. www.gotyips.com/elgg
