Weird formatting issue in GQ Forum on my phone

I'm guessing this is only happening on my phone, otherwise someone else would have already started a thread about it. It started a few days ago and is ONLY happening in General Questions. The top part of the page (logo, menu, everything down to "Threads in Forum: General Questions") only goes about 3/4 of the way across the screen. The list of thread titles goes all the way across but the font is smaller than in other forums. Then from the "Post New Thread" button to the bottom of the page, 3/4 across again.

I've tried going from portrait to landscape and back to see if I could force it to reset, but it displays the same way no matter the orientation. If I open a thread it looks OK, it's just the GQ forum screen that's messed up. It's odd that only one forum is affected.

Any ideas what the problem is? If it's a browser issue and not the board software, how do I fix it? (Android/Chrome)

ETA: My mistake. Landscape looks OK. Only portrait is a problem.

I have seen that on my IPad and phone at different times. It never has lasted long. I have logged out and came back and it would be back to normal.

Well, whatever it was, it's back to normal this morning after looking funny for about a week.

My iPhone has been doing the same thing. Just checked; still doing it.

ETA: logged out & back in; still wonky.
