I am creating my first website and ran into a CSS problem.  I'm attaching two pictures to show you what I mean.  I would like all browsers to display like IE does in the attached photo.  I want them to show fullscreen.  As you can see firefox is not doing this.  Here is my CSS file:  Thanks!
Not sure why the IE picture duplicated, sorry bout that.

body,td,th {
	font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
	font-size: 14px;
	color: #333;
	line-height:1.5em;
}
body {
	  padding: 0;
  margin: 0;
  background: #f8f7e5 url(background.jpg) no-repeat center top;

  width: 100%;
  display: table;

}
a {
	font-size: 14px;
	color: #03F;
}
a:link {
	text-decoration: none;
	color: #006;
}
a:visited {
	text-decoration: none;
	color: #333;
}
a:hover {
	text-decoration: none;
	color: #000;
}
a:active {
	text-decoration: none;
	color: #03F;
}
#pageHeader {
	border:#999 1px solid;
	border-bottom:none;
	background: #f8f7e5 url(background.jpg) no-repeat center top;
	width:900px;
	
}
#pageContent {
	border:#999 1px solid;
	border-bottom:none;
	background: #f8f7e5 url(background.jpg) no-repeat center top;
	width:900px;

}
#pageFooter {
	border:#999 1px solid;
	background: #f8f7e5 url(background.jpg) no-repeat center top;
	width:900px;
	
}

Add a height to #pageContent {
 also, you can add a clear both after you close the <div id="pageContent">

You can't judge your display when you are missing one of the pictures.  IE has a user selectable option in Internet Options under the Advanced tab "Show image download placeholders"  to reserve the space on the page for pics and Firefox does not.

I tried both to no avail.  Would you mind showing me inside of my code what to do, please?  I am new to CSS.  

@DaveBaldwin
I uploaded a pic to the one where there was no pic, and it made no noticeable difference.

Try this:
body {
        padding: 0;
  margin: 0;
  background: #f8f7e5 url(background.jpg) no-repeat center top;
height:100%;
  width: 100%;
  display: table;}

#pageContent {
      border:#999 1px solid;
      border-bottom:none;
      background: #f8f7e5 url(background.jpg) no-repeat center top;
      width:900px;
height:600px; (or whatever)
clear:both;
}
#pageFooter {
      border:#999 1px solid;
      background: #f8f7e5 url(background.jpg) no-repeat center top;
      width:900px;
height:150px;
clear:both;
      
}

I would take "display: table;" out of your body definition and as far as I know, body is always 100% width of the browser window so I wouldn't use that either.

Okay, I got it.  I removed "display: table;" and added a height:100%; to the body.  

Here is the code for anyone that may need it.   Thanks fellas.

body,td,th {
	font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
	font-size: 14px;
	color: #333;
	line-height:1.5em;
	
}
body {
	  padding: 0;
  margin: 0;
  background: #f8f7e5 url(background.jpg) no-repeat center top;

  width: 100%;
  heigth: 100%;

}
a {
	font-size: 14px;
	color: #03F;
}
a:link {
	text-decoration: none;
	color: #006;
}
a:visited {
	text-decoration: none;
	color: #333;
}
a:hover {
	text-decoration: none;
	color: #000;
}
a:active {
	text-decoration: none;
	color: #03F;
}
#pageHeader {
	border:#999 1px solid;
	border-bottom:none;
	background: #f8f7e5 url(background.jpg) no-repeat center top;
	width:900px;
