Looks identical to me in Firefox 3.6.15 and IE8.  Which version of IE are you using?

Try increasing the overall width a little.  Maybe 840px and see what happens.

That fixed it but it also gave me a white margin on the left so i went in and decreased width of main content area.

Thanks

IE7 and IE6 seem to have a little extra margin that affects precise layouts.  Also, I wouldn't put anything in my code for IE5.  According to this page http://marketshare.hitslink.com/browser-market-share.aspx?qprid=2 , it must be less than 0.06% of the users.  Thanks for the points.

And the code below is not valid in your CSS file.  The only place that IE looks for the conditional statments is in the main HTML file.
--> 
</style><!--[if IE 5]>
<style type="text/css"> 
/* place css box model fixes for IE 5* in this conditional comment */
.thrColFixHdr #sidebar1 { width: 180px; }
.thrColFixHdr #sidebar2 { width: 190px; }
</style>
<![endif]--><!--[if IE]>
<style type="text/css"> 
/* place css fixes for all versions of IE in this conditional comment */
.thrColFixHdr #sidebar2, .thrColFixHdr #sidebar1 { padding-top: 0px; }
.thrColFixHdr #mainContent { zoom: 1; }
/* the above proprietary zoom property gives IE the hasLayout it needs to avoid several bugs */
</style>
<![endif]-->
