Agreed. Nothing to do with float or clear. The solution is a lot more obvious.

Here's the problem:
#Content {
         clear: both;
         font: 10pt Tahoma;
         ****height: 300px;****
         padding-top: 5px;
         text-align: left;
         width: 660px;

Firefox is creating the #Content div as a 300 pixel tall container and 
rendering the next element in the document flow immediately after. Doesn't 
matter that the content is actually longer than the specified height.

Remove that line and you're good to go.
