Dear All,

I am also having the same problems. It is irritating to see that the styles
and fonts are constantly changed every time I run a code. To whom I should
report?

What happened was that something presumably changed the style sheet of
the notebook to another one.  One possibility is that it was changed
somehow to the internal style sheet used by the Documentation Center
which has its styles set so that they do not appear in the
Format>Style menu.  It is certainly possible that this--or something
like it--happened due to a bug.

Of course if you can find the steps that caused this to happen, yoiu
shodl report it to Wolfram support so that they can investigate it...
