My site looks like I want it to in IE but there are several problems when viewing in FF.

Compare http://www.senatorbarkley.com/bio1.htm between the two browsers.
On right side, the white box "Bookmark This Page" is to the left instead of being centered.
The yellow is not going down below the white box.
How can I fix these?

Then in page http://www.senatorbarkley.com/bio2.htm I add two buttons in the gold area at the top. They display just fine in IE but in FF the text in the main center runs out of the center column. The Search button does not even show up in FF.
Again how can I fix this?

The CSS file can be found at http://www.senatorbarkley.com/css/main1.css .

Thanks.

Thanks wickedsunny, using margin:0 auto made the box center in FF.

Now can you (or anyone else) help me with the second problem. I did not upload the CSS or code as both are long. I have cut them both down to the minimum and still show the problem. Here is the CSS:

div {
	text-align:center;
}

#contribute_button {
	text-align:right;
	margin-top: -50px;
	padding-right: 2.5%;
}

div#search_button {
	float: left;
	margin-top: -50px;
	padding-left: 2.5%;	
	z-index: 5;
}

div#page {
	border: none;
	width:100%;
	margin:0 auto;	
	text-align:left;
	background: #393C62;
}

div#header {
	border-top:solid #393C62;
	border-bottom:solid #393C62;  
	width:100%;
	background: #393C62;
    margin:0 auto;	
}

div#leftcontent {
	border:none;
	width:210px;
	float:left; 
    margin:0 auto;	
	background: #F7FF96;
	background-repeat:repeat;
	height:1100px;	
}

div#rightcontent {
	border:none;
    width:210px;
	float:right; 
    margin:0 auto;	
	background: #595d9b;
	background-repeat:repeat;
 	height:1100px;	
}

div#centercontent {
	border:solid white;;
	background: white;
	padding-left: 10px;
	padding-right: 10px;
	padding-bottom: 10px;
	height: 1045px;	
	overflow:auto;
    margin:0 auto;		
	}

div#testimonial {
	border:none;
	text-align:center;
	font-family: "Helvetica Neue",helvetica,"microsoft sans serif",arial,sans-serif;
	font-size: .75em;
	color: white;
	padding: 0px 3px 0px 3px; 
    margin:0 auto;		 
}

Thanks in advanced.

Using size styles (width, height) and nonzero surround styles (margin, border, padding) in the same tag or stylesheet style guarantees an incompatibility between IE rendering and FF rendering, because IE nests them in the wrong order.
