Without seeing it in action, along with everything else around it, it's difficult to tell... One thing that MAY be the case is having the DIV inside your UL.  That's technically not proper HTML, since only LI should be inside UL.  (You can have a DIV inside the LI, but not as a direct child of the UL)

First thing I would try is removing that DIV and putting it outside the UL like so:
<ul id="menu">
					<li><br/><br/><br/><a class="current">HOME</a></li>
					<li><br/><br/><br/><a href="789456123d/aboutus.html">ÜBER UNS</a></li>
					<li><br/><br/><br/><a href="789456123d/team.html">TEAM</a></li>
					<li><br/><br/><br/><a href="789456123d/practice.html">TÄTIGKEITSGEBIETE</a></li>
					<li><br/><br/><br/><a href="789456123d/news.html">NACHRICHTEN</a></li>
					<li><br/><br/><br/><a href="789456123d/contact.html">KONTAKT</a></li>
				</ul>
<div style="z-index: 99; position: relative; left:25px; top: -0px; height: 64px;"><img src="images/logo1b.png" width="300px" /></div>

If you could post a link to the site (if that's possible) it would help us debug the issue a little better.

It looks broken, but without a validation of the page I would not even venture a guess what is wrong.  Firefox tends to be more sensitive to markup errors so it makes senses that a structure like that would have issues.

As I suspected, the code is not valid.  Run your markup through http://validator.w3.org/
and fix your errors.  Putting a div inside the list is the worst problem, but there are a couple of others errors as well.  The stylesheet looks okay but you are also doing inline styling and that kind of mix can be lethal to a page; and make maintenance difficult.
