Stumped: Why does one menu option shift my page several pixels to the right?

In Chrome and Firefox:
If I click on Sample Projects menu item, my page content jumps several pixels to the right.
Clicking on any other menu items including the submenus of Sample Projects displays the content in the same location.

Doesn't happen with IE

Now get this: if I open a dev tools window in either Chrome or Firefox, then the Sample Projects page jumps back to the same location as all the other menu options...

Completely stumped... was going to use devtools to examine box metrics to see what was off... but opening a devtools window corrects the problem...

Any wizards out there that can figure this out?

With Regards-
Sam

Because on the other page you have a scrollbar, in cases like this you can force the scrollbar even when the page doesn't warrant it with a bit of css.

body {
    overflow-y: scroll;
}

Open in new window

A different thought - any ideas how to determine if there is no scroll bar and use css to add the scroll bar width to the right margin?
