On my page my item "countdowntimer" refuses to center in FireFox.

It looks fine in IE:  http://www.glowfishtw.com/play3on3/admin_counter_edit.aspx

Any ideas what's going on here?

     <div class="clear">&nbsp;</div>
            <div class="countdown_center">
          <div class="countdown_bg_edit">      <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< trying to center this
            <span id="countdown1">
            <asp:Literal ID="Counter" runat="server"></asp:Literal>      
            </span>
          </div>
            </div>

.countdown_bg_edit {
      height: 80px;
      width: 192px;
      background-image: url(../images/countdown_bg.png);
      background-repeat: no-repeat;
      margin-top: 5px;
      font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
      font-size: 22px;
      font-weight: bold;
      color: #000;
      padding-top: 54px;
      padding-left: 0px;
}

      text-align: center;
      width: 100%;

Just add margin-left: auto and margin-right: auto to the class countdown_bg_edit to center the div.
