    Google Chrome, Safari positioning issue with YouTube video bar

    I'm having a strange issue with the positioning of a youtube videobar in the the right sidebar, but it only seems to be happening on Chrome and Safari. When one of the video thumbnails in the bar is clicked, it's supposed to open a player video beside it, but in Chrome and Safari the player video opens elsewhere on the page. It appears to work fine in Firefox and IE7 (only other browsers I've been able to test it in so far).

    Here's the page: makeupandbeautyblog.com.

    The bar is created using the Google Search API.

    When I take the website's existing HTML and CSS out of the equation and just test the videobar by inserting it in a blank HTML page (an example) the player opens in the correct position, which is a dynamic position calculated within the javascript of Google's Search API. I haven't changed it from the defaults, just copied it locally to the site. The bulk of the changes to Google's defaults that I've made were by placing the #videoBar div that contains the videobar itself within a styled #vidBarholder div with a background image. Both of those divs are then placed within the sidebar left floated containing div.

    Any help would be appreciated. I spent 8 hours trying to figure this out yesterday to no avail.
