    I’m trying to put a shadow around the main content area of my homepage. I created a background image and set it to run down the center of the body of the page, but it gets cut off in Firefox – it works fine in IE6. Can anyone help?

    Here’s the site:

    Here’s the CSS:

    It seems like the shadow appears only around what is initially displayed in the browser – if I have to scroll down, the portion of the page below the initial "fold" does not have the shadow. If I zoom out, the shadow image will appear. Weird.

    Thanks for your reply. I saw that the container only went down halfway down the page too. But, I’m applying the drop shadow image as a background image to the "body" tag in CSS, so it’s not tied to the container or the footer div. If I apply a background image to the "body" tag, shouldn’t it apply regardless of what’s going on with my divs?

    instead of putting the shadow in the body{}, why not create another wrapper (far-outer-wrap)?
    that will surely solves your problem.

    it will look like this in html:



    AND BY THE WAY, the culprit of your problem is the HEIGHT: 100% inside body… look:

    html, body {

    just remove it and your page will be happy… :)

    Thanks for your reply. I have the "height:100%" in there because I want to make the container div stretch all the way to the bottom regardless of browser height. I figured out that the reason my container div was not going all the way down the page was because I forgot to add "clear:both" at the bottom. I had some "float:left" for some of my inner divs that was causing them to float outside the confines of the container div. Thanks everyone!

    actually, the BODY will automatically stretch even if you dont specify height: 100% inside body.
    so, remove the 100% and you can use CLEAR…
