    FireFox IE 7 css layout - Why?

    below i have attached a screen shot and code of my question....

    Can you please tell me why the yellow block does not behaive the same in FIREFOX as in IE

    But if I insert an image (curently commented out in the code below ) before the closing tag of the yellow block then it behaives .

    Why does the yellow block not see that it has content in side it in FIREFOX.



    .block{ border: 1px solid #FF0000; width:350px; height:150px; background:#66Adff; float:left; }

    .main{ margin:auto; width:800px; height:auto; background-color: #FFFF00; border: 1px solid #00FF00; padding:20px; }

    .square{ border: 1px solid #000000; width:100px; height:100px; background:blue; }


    <div class="main">

    <div class="block">
    <div class="square"> </div>

    <div class="block">
    <div class="square"> </div>

    <!-- <img src="image_1.gif" width="100" height="10" border="0px"> -->
