Your div#main contains two floated blocks; these are removed from the  
flow, and as a result that div doesn't expand as you wish. It works  
in IE because that div has a 'width' specified. This causes the div  
to get 'layout' [1], and enclose the floated blocks.

A good method to solve this problem is the 'easy clearing' technique  
[2].
