Looks like missing stylesheet assets ... tried a hard refresh and didn't have any issues myself ... do you have another browser on that machine to try and see if it happens there too?

Does your adblocker have an easy way to disable it just to test if that is the reason? (a lot of times there will be an icon for it in the window that you can right-click on and get a little menu to turn it on and off for a page or domain)

Because of the way adblockers work it very well could be affecting the loading of the style assets needed to layout the page correctly ...

If it being caused by your adblocker there could be a specific advert that is coming into rotation that is throwing off your system ... let me know if it happens again ... we're talking about computers, everything is a pattern that can be resolved ...

Depending on which ad blocker you're using, you might see something similar to this. If the circle on the right hand side of the page is to the right and is blue or green it means the blocker is operational. To turn it off, click on the ball and it should turn off and move to the left hand side.

If a page isn't loading properly, especially the home page, then just do a simple page reload/refresh. That should solve it. An ad or ad-blocker isn't causing any issue like that. I did some recent updates to our stylesheet in the afternoon of November 30th, so maybe the timing of that update and you visiting that page caused the problem.
