I have previously seen the same apparent problem on tigerdirect.com
where the main body of the page is off to the right of the screen for
some reason, and it only happened in SeaMonkey. (that site seems to be
okay now, though)

The ca.gov site from OP's problem does, however, have terribly mangled
XHTML (including two closing body tags and many improperly nested
tags, among other things). It would be interesting to see if the page
still exhibited problems after being fixed.
