Default Label width in firefox

Hi all,
I've made an ASP.NET AJAX Enabled WebApplication in VS2005.
Everything's working great in IE7 but then I tried on FireFox and...problem. (FF
The width of the labels inside my DataTable ItemTemplate aren't fix,
the width is restricted to the used width of the text inside.
An example to clarify:


 |label1 ||label2 ||label3 |

FF 2:


This ofcourse misses with my colums-layout in my DataTable.
I tried a different DOCTYPE and not using 'px' in a width-specifications but nothing worked:

here is a peice of my markup code:

<asp:DataList ID="_dlOverview" runat="server" Width="98%" BorderStyle="Solid" BorderWidth="1px"
                            CellPadding="4" ForeColor="#333333" Style="z-index: 102; left: 0px; position: absolute;
                            top: 0px;" Visible="False">
                            <FooterStyle BackColor="#1C5E55" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
                            <SelectedItemStyle BackColor="#C5BBAF" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="#333333" />
                                <span style="white-space: nowrap">
                                    <asp:Label ID="_lBullet" runat="server" Text="•" Width="5px" ToolTip='<%# ConvertDateToLocal((DateTime)Eval("ArrivalDateUtc" )) + " | " + Eval("SerialData") + " | " + Eval("DataString")%>'></asp:Label>
                                    <asp:Label ID="_ArrivalDate" Text='<%# ConvertDateToLocal((DateTime)Eval("ArrivalDateUtc" )) %>'
                                        runat="server" Width="135px" ToolTip='<%# ConvertDateToLocal((DateTime)Eval("ArrivalDateUtc" )) %>'
                                    <asp:Label ID="_lSerialData" Text='<%# (Eval("SerialData") != null & Eval("SerialData") != "")? Eval("SerialData"): " - " %>'
                                            runat="server" Width="190px" ToolTip='<%# Eval("SerialData") %>' BackColor="Transparent"></asp:Label>
                                    <asp:Label ID="_lDataString" Text='<%# Eval("DataString") %>' runat="server" Width="600px"
                                                ToolTip='<%# Eval("DataString") %>' Style="white-space: nowrap min-width: 500px;"
                            <AlternatingItemStyle BackColor="White" BorderColor="Silver" BorderStyle="Solid"
                                BorderWidth="1px" />
                            <ItemStyle BackColor="Lavender" />
                                <asp:Label ID="ArrivalDate" runat="server" Text="Arrival Date (local)" Width="135px"
                                    Font-Underline="True"></asp:Label>&nbsp; &nbsp;<asp:Label ID="_lHeaderSerialData"
                                        runat="server" Text="Serial Data" Width="185px" Font-Underline="True"></asp:Label>
                                <asp:Label ID="_lHeaderDataString" runat="server" Text="Data String" Width="500px"
                            <HeaderStyle BackColor="Navy" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" BorderColor="Silver"
                                BorderStyle="Solid" BorderWidth="1px" HorizontalAlign="Left" />
