Firefox problem with overflow

P: n/a
Hi there,

I have a problem with this css/div and i cannot work it out. I would
like either container to be able to push the background box to grow but
in Firefox it overflows. Can someone find a solution to the problem
contained in the code.

Please provide an URL. Especially since there are images.

Which one is the "background box?"
Which are the "either container?"
