In short, I would say the "<div id="tools" style="float: right;"> is making
the box go to the right in mozilla. I wouldnt think you would have to float
some thing left AND some things right. If you structure your content, you
should be able to get away with just float:right. Then, as thomas said limit
the wrapper width. 

You didnt indicate if you want everything a flexible layout or a fixed
layout which would make a difference.
