Issue with website toolbar

Hi everyone,

I'm fairly new at CSS but I'm getting the hang of it. My problem might actually not be with CSS itself, but it definitely involves it. I've attached two screenshots of my website's toolbar, one from Google Chrome and one from Internet Explorer. Each button in the toolbar has a specifically designated width in pixels. The toolbar fits perfectly in Chrome but for some reason, it falls short in Internet Explorer. This seems extremely puzzling to me because I was under the impression that a pixel is a pixel is a pixel.

Why is there space in between header and navigation?

If anyone can help explain to me why this is happening and offer a solution, I would greatly appreciate it!

I am eventually going to edit the images used to create these menu tabs so that the space in between them is the same blue as the header instead of white.

As you can see from the screenshot, below the header there is some blank space where you can see my striped background, then comes in my tab menu and main site content. I want the tab menu to be flush with the header. What am I doing wrong? Thanks to all for any help.
