Shrinking of children of floated/absolute elements

A floated or absolutely positioned element does not have a width and is stretched up by an image. When the image is swapped for a far smaller image, the parent element's width should diminish. Mozilla, though, doesn't diminish the width of the other elements in the floated element, and therefore the parent element retains its original width.
