I've got a div that is overflowing its container and is running over the bottom div.  IE6 displays as it should, however firefox is messing up.
The url is

If you go to the website, the div that is messing up is the form on the right that I'm inserting in.  

I'm adding in a file that has its own css so the two are confusing me as to what needs done.

try this:

Remove the height:545px; from the #right style.

If it breaks IE6, put it back with a hack like this: _height:545px;
IE6 only reads the underscore.

Worked great.  Thanks for reminding me about Firebug, made the change in it, and worked.  Going to use that more often.
