Hi Chris,
Before I try everything and search high and low, sometimes I don't 
forget to validate.
The html-validator 

reports there is no charset, and the <div> is missing the </div> end 
tag; probably get lost in one of your versions. Surprise! ;-)
What happens after repairing this?

It seems the #mainmenu {height: 30px} is prohibiting the cell/table to 
expand > giving also troubles in FF when then visitor has scaled up the 
fontsize. The fixed height causes the menu-items are coming out of the box.

If you don't have planned dropdown submenu's, the sfHover-script is not 
needed, I think: a css-hover is enough. - If you want to make submenus, 
then the class ".sfhover" has to be added in the li-style. See 
Suckerfish-article <>.
