> Any way to force the wrap in Firefox or is it just a fact of life?

Well it's a fact of life, unfortunately :)

"john-c-doe-is-my-email-address at example.email.com" is a single word and it
is "unbreakable".

just like "johncdoeismyemailaddressexampleemailcom" is.

It will not wrap because firefox (or any browser that renders the box
"properly" --which means anything but MSIE--) cannot wrap it. It cannot
simply find where to break the word and displays the word as a whole.

You can

1. either increase the width of the container div
2. or add and "overflow" attribute to the css class of the div.
