Firefox display issues, works fine in IE though?

I just made this little demo for my work with a little bit of everything in it...And for some reason it displays differently in Firefox then it does in IE.

http://www.academyattendance.com.au/AttendanceWebsite/index.html

Mainly, the drop down menu seems to be overlapping the cell by 1px, and the flash to the right of what is now the Iframe displays at a different size to the IE one...I am completely stumped here and can not work this out. It could be CSS? Not too sure.

Any valid help appreciated.

I'm not able to get to your page. Is it down?

In any case, if you're still having issues with the layout in firefox, you can download a plug-in (Firebug) for fire fox and troubleshoot the layout. This tool will let you make changes that you can see right in the browser. Once the changes you've made look good, you can make those changes to the actual code and deploy it to your sever and test it out. Hope this helps.

Oh by the way, the actual flash problem has been rectified. It's dimensions were set to 100x560 instead of 182x560 somewhere, not sure why it worked in IE...the javascript still wont work though.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

It is a drop down menu...I have tried to configure it so that it is nestled within the cell, and it works with IE but when i open it in Firefox it sits 1px under the top and bottom of the cell.

This is not a JavaScript issue. It's in the layout.
 <th height ="24" colspan="4"bgcolor="#3E5A7D" id="links" scope="col">
change the height to 100% or anything lower than 24... 22 should work too. 24 is causing it to go out of bounds and firefox takes the literal value.

 <th height ="100%" colspan="4"bgcolor="#3E5A7D" id="links" scope="col">
or
 <th height ="22" colspan="4"bgcolor="#3E5A7D" id="links" scope="col">
