have you tried giving fix width to .green #mnu ul like720px.
if problem persists
try giving negative margin to .green #menu for ie and 0px to mozilla.
the one with [class] is ignored by IE.
 

.green #mnu{
position:relative;
display:block;
height:32px;
width:720px;
font-size:12px;
font-weight:bold;
background:transparent url(../images/bg_menu.gif) repeat-x top left;
font-family:Arial,Verdana,Helvitica,sans-serif;
margin-top:-1px; /* try with different negative number */
} 
 
 
.green[class] #mnu{
margin-top:0px;
}

Thanks for you help.

That it turned out that I had to change the css code as shown below.

Thanks for the inspiration, though!!!
.green #mnu ul li a:link, .green #mnu ul li a:visited,.green #mnu ul li a:active{
display:block;
float:left;
color:#EEFFDF;
text-decoration:none;
padding:10px 10px 0 10px;
height:28px;
font-size:12px; /*added this line */
margin:0px; /* added this line */
}
