I gave the footer the class clearfix, but its not solving the collapsing. Is it a bug or what is my mistake?

You did give the footer the class "clearfix", and that's correct.

But it looks like you also added that class to the unordered list, which is not part of the instructions and is causing the system to reject your entry.
