Text wrap problem firefox

Hi, I have a div where I have set its width to 480.
It works fine in IE, the text that i m inserting in this div gets
wrapped, but in firefox the text that i m inserting in the div is
coming out.
What's a workaround for that.

Here is my stylesheet for that div.
#detailsPopup2 {position:absolute;border-width:2px;border:solid;border-
color:#666666;text-align:left;padding:5px;top:480px;left:60px;width:
400px;height:auto;background:#52F3FF;font-family:sans-serif;font-size:
80%;z-index:110;}

no, it's 400.

no problemo with my Fx

perhaps the default font-size is higger in your Fx than in your IE and
you have a word (a string without white-spaces) longer than the width of
the div ?

Try fixing the width of your div in 'em' instead of 'px'

width: 400px; /* for IE < 7 */
min-width: 400px; /* for other browsers */
max-width: 600px;
