(before this I wrote something about the base_tag, please ignore it ...)

I don't know why, but when I load my site through the silverstripe template-engine, the body-background ends, when the last div ends. The error also occurs without anything changed in the template (like base_tag %meta_tags, %Content ...). When I load the template directly from hd (...index.html) everything is fine.
This problem only occours in firefox, in IE6 or opera everything is fine.

Any ideas, I'm really despaired.... ?

Thanks in advance.

Put that grey background color on the html as well. So that if the body tag is shorter (ie like your case) it will display grey.

In your layout.css

html {
background: #888; /* whatever your grey color is */

There are other methods like adding body or html { height: 100%} but I prefer that first method of putting the bg on the html tag
