Your inset should be at the end. I believe you can also include the inset at the beginning of the second box-shadow. I don't why is not accepting your code.

.main-header {  box-shadow:0 2px 15px #aaa, 0 0 60px 5px firebrick inset;}

Either order will work, but it's a best practice to have inset at the beginning, not the end.

The MDN documentation shows it this way:

none | [inset? && [ <offset-x> <offset-y> <blur-radius>? <spread-radius>? <color>? ] ]#
