100% Height problem only in Firefox?

P: 1

Well I'm a newbie to CSS and I have an issue with using 100% height when viewed in Firefox. If I use a pixel measurement, everything works well. I uploaded it to my site:

I'm trying to make an always centered DIV which I've called container. The website fits into this DIV. The yellow blocks are floated left.

Any ideas? I'm tearing my hair out (what's left of it!). Maybe I should have stuck with tables...

The problem is not 100% height. The problem is you are expecting the container div to expand to contain the floated content. That is not how it works. IE does expand the div but that is a bug in IE and incorrect behavior.

To get your container to expand, add overflow:auto; to the container css.
