My homepage will often open with HUGE text in my menu that fills the screen.

This page works fine in IE by the way.
Everything's fine for me on FF 29.0.1, Win 7 x64 on www.toolshedstudio.com.
Please check if the issue occurs using Firefox in safe mode (with your addons disabled):

And on a new, empty profile:

I tried opening the homepage in safe mode with add-ons disabled and I had the same problem (one refresh will fix it). Funny thing is I cannot reproduce this on my desktop running the same version (29.0.1) just on my laptop.

Try also with a new profile

I'm following the directions in the link to create a new profile but I cannot get the profile options window to come up. Even after a restart of my computer, going to the "Run" menu and typing "firefox.exe" or "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" it will just open firefox (same as clicking the firefox icon in my dashboard. I have followed the directions but to no avail. What am I missing?

you have to type "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -p

Ah, with the -p. Got it.

So I did that and opened Firefox in a newly created profile and I was still able to reproduce the problem. I will add a screenshot attachment from the new profile. Not sure where to go from here. This seems to be only happen on certain computers as I cannot for the life of me get this to happen on my desktop which is running all the same stuff. No clue.

Newly created profile screenshot

Created a new Firefox profile and recreated the issue there as well.
Bugzilla won't let you attach *.bmp files.
Please attach png or jpg.

Screenshot of Error
Still can't repro, FF 29.0.1, Win 7 x64.
Component: General → Graphics
This is not a Firefox bug, it's an authoring error.

In http://www.toolshedstudio.com/css/style.css, around line 350, you'll find:

    ul {
	color: white;
	font-size: 700;

I think this is wrong. (You probably meant font-weight, not font-size.) This is where the huge font comes from.

(I don't know exactly why it sometimes gets overridden by some other setting; probably that has to do with styles that get modified dynamically as the page loads, but which value you end up with depends on the exact timing or something like that...)
