Thanks - this helped me find the problem. The development site was  
configured to add a custom HTTP header that set the content-type to  
text/html for all pages. Once I took that out, FF started implementing the  
CSS correctly. Now, I just have to remember why I added that header in the  
first place - I want to say that the W3C's HTML validator was asking for a  
content-type header at some point, but I can't remember for sure.

Thanks, also, for the tip on quotes in an @import() statement. I've taken  
them out.
