This may(?) help, at least in FF:

#sideBarContainer {
	position: absolute;
	/*top: 100px;*/
        top: 92px;
	left: 588px;
	padding: 0 0 0 0;}

In general, using absolute positioning to layout a page, and setting 
height on containers, often proves problematic.Same for the tiny pixel 
set fonts and line-height. The page should hold font zoom in all 
browsers-- even IE. Those good folks at the Illinois Institute of 
Technology Institute of Design Strategy (whatever that means) might go 
for your page with colors disabled-- I did, and I'm from Chicago, well I 
was from there-- they kicked me out.
