    It's because of the font you've used - "QlassikMedium" - it's not a standard font, so the different browsers are displaying differently - in Firefox and IE the fonts are wider so your Twitter and Facebook links don't have enough room one the same line.

    Sort out your font issue and you should be good.

    It might be that IE and FF are using quirksmode because you do not have a strict doctype.

    try changing:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"

    If that does not fix it then you need to follow the advice from Chris and use a more conventional font.
