I can't get the scrollbar to show up after setting overflow to auto. I can find the scrollbar and use it if I "guess" where it should be and scroll down as if I were seeing it. All other browsers are showing the scrollbar and firefox will behave correctly with all other overflow values. So basically, the scrollbar is there but it is invisible in firefox for some reason.

You don't give Firefox much room for a scroll bar with a height:18px.
So you probably won't see much if Firefox did add a scroll bar.
The DIV #footer can also use a style clear:both

Thanks jscher! I ended up making the div 34px per your suggestion.
