    Background position not working in FireFox

    PLEASE DELETE POST - I found the problem to be relating the correct CSS page back to my HTML.

    I have a sprite I'm trying to get to work and when I view Firebug it's completely ignoring the fact that I have a background-position: declaration in my CSS.

    (I'm having issues with the "#as span" and the "#iso span"

    I did some reading and all I could find was FireFox has issues with background-position-x & -y. This is not my case.

    I also tried typing in background-position right into Firebug and it came up crossed out with an "Invalid Property Value"

    I'm at a loss here...

    HTML Code:
    	<ul id="certsHeader">
    		<li id="ts"><a href="documents/certifications/ISO_TS16949.pdf" target="_blank"><span></span>TS16949 (ISO9001)</a></li>
    		<li id="as"><a href="documents/certifications/AS9100.pdf" target="_blank"><span></span>AS9100</a></li>
    		<li id="iso"><a href="documents/certifications/ISO14001.pdf" target="_blank"><span></span>ISO14001</a></li>	
    		float: left;
    		font-size: 11pt;
    		margin: 35px 0 0 125px;
    		color: #696969;
    		font-weight: 600;
    		font-style: italic;
    		position: relative;
    		#certsHeader li{
    			display: inline-block;
    			margin-left: 75px;
    		#certsHeader li a, #certsHeader li a:visited{color: #696969;}
    		#certsHeader li a:hover{color: blue;}
    		#ts span{
    			background-image: url('images/certIcons.png');
    			position: absolute;
    			top: 0;
    			left: 40px;
    			height: 18px;
    			width: 25px;
    		#as span{
    			background-image: url('images/certIcons.png');
    			background-position: -25px 0px;
    			height: 18px;
    			width: 16px;
    			position: absolute;
    			top: 0;
    			left: 270px;
    		#iso span{
    			background-position: -41px 0;
    			position: absolute;
    			top: 0;
    			left: 400px;
    			height: 18px;
    			width: 16px;

    Do you have a link to the page as that code seems to be working? If the site's not live then perhaps attach the sprite so we can see what we are dealing with.
