Why are certain website pages blank until I refresh or resize them?

When I open www.mistilayne.com in Chrome, I can see the content on the main page, but when I go to other pages like "Connect" or "Yes, My Real Name", there is no content until I either refresh the page or resize it.  This problem is not exclusive to my machine and only occurs in Chrome, not IE or Firefox.  I've tried this on 4 other machines in different locations and have asked others to look at it and they have all seen the same problem.  This is a Wordpress site that worked fine up until about a week ago.  There were no changes to the site except the client added a blog entry.  We had the host and designer of the template restore from before the blog was added and it is still doing the same thing.  I'm using Chrome 41, and so are some of the others.

I was able to find somewhat of answer that appears in this forum but it seems to be an HTML site solution and not tailored for Wordpress themes.  So far I have found very little with respect to Wordpress/Chrome visibility issues.  The owner of site has tried reaching out to the template designer to look at the theme's code, but there hasn't been a response yet.  Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

I noticed that before you refresh or resize, the scroll bar shows a long blank page. After the refresh/resize, it shows much smaller. It has something to do with the responsive design not drawing the screen correctly.

Interesting William.  We must have to tweak the CSS code.  I'll have the designer check it out (if he responds) and see what happens.

It seems to do it regardless of what the browser size is, if that helps. It's almost like it's not detecting the browser width so it doesn't know what to do until you manually adjust it.

William, you are exactly right.  Although the designer hasn't gotten back to me I am sure if they validate/debug the code and make the necessary changes to the design on those pages, it will work.  We looked at other sites that use the same theme and they are having the exact same problem.

I built a responsive site like that a couple years ago and I seem to remember running into something similar. Some browsers prefer certain CSS code to others. I forgot all the specifics but it took a lot of back and forth until I got it working universally. Real pain in the behind! Good luck with it. Glad I was able to at least point you in the right direction.
