This happens because the menu was made with UL tags, which are used for lists. The "list-style: none;" is what makes it change to be horizontal. If you would rather not have it change while the page is loading, you should then re-create the menu without using UL tags. I recommend a DIV with other DIV tags inside.

Can you please help me to modify it?
<div class="clear hideSkiplink">
                <asp:LoginView ID="NavbarLogin" runat="server" EnableViewState="false">
                            <ContentTemplate>
                                <asp:Menu ID="Navigation" Orientation="Horizontal" runat="server" CssClass="menu" EnableViewState="false" IncludeStyleBlock="false">
                                    <Items>
                                        <asp:MenuItem NavigateUrl="Home.aspx" Text="Home" ToolTip="My personal home page"/>
                                                                                                                        <asp:MenuItem NavigateUrl="javascript:void(0);" Text="Second Page" ToolTip="Second Page">
                                                                                                                                    <asp:MenuItem Text="Show my page" Value="Show my page" ToolTip="My page" NavigateUrl="SecondPage.aspx"></asp:MenuItem>
                                    </Items>
