I hope you can help me with the following problem:
On this test site I have a dropdown-navigation to the left. The problem is, that the menu is clipped when it reaches the footer-widget elements.
I've heard that overflow:hidden might cause this in some situations, but I cannot see the problem.
Any help would be appreciated!

Yes its the overflow:hidden on #inner that cuts the menu short. Remove the overflow:hidden and use another clearing mechanism.
margin: 0 auto;
/* overflow: hidden;*/
zoom:1.0;/* IE7 and under */

That was indeed the solution - thank you for your fast response!
I will refrain from using overflow:hidden when possible from now on.

It's usually the best solution, from what I can tell. Just watch out for the occasional situation like this where content does need to hang out of the cantainer.
