Do not capitalize the first letter of each word.

IE6 is the worst browser on the planet, old, buggy and non-standard. If you use IE to design your page, and then expect a modern browser like Firefox to work with it, then you are being fooled by IE.

Without the complete markup or a link, we can only guess at the problem.

As always, the problem is IE. You must have designed this page using IE because you wouldn't have had the problem if you used a modern browser like Firefox.

You use position:relative and then use a negative placement using 'top' in several places. Relative placement means that element is moved from its current position but the space occupied by that element is not removed. That is why the body remains extended as it is.

While Firefox dutifully follows what you wrote, IE totally ignores your markup and does what it feels like. Never, ever use IE as your test browser.
