In short: IE is wrong.

IE is applying its 'Layout bug', and it's caused by width/height acting
as 'hasLayout'[1] triggers and making those containers expand to push
the footer down.

Standard-compliant browsers won't do that unless they're told --
correctly. A 'clear' at the right place will do the trick.

Add: #footer {clear: both;}
....and Firefox will get the message.
