I'm not sure what Web developer toolbar you're talking about, but by
appearance it looks like what happened is that something enabled all
of the alternate style sheets for the page simultaneously.  (The
diagonal orange/green stripes are in the "Draft 2" style; the red
border is in the "Draft 3" style; the multi-column layout is in both
the "Cascade" styles.)
