You have probably pressed the insert/replace key by accident. Try pressing it again.

Why can't you create an MWE? Does the problem disappear if you remove any part of the document?

comment right bind when using align
A dirty trick is to use \hspace{1000pt} and then check the size of the resulting overfull hbox in the log file. If it's overfull by n points, change 1000 to 1000 - n.

I can't reproduce the problem using the code you have posted. Please edit your question so that it includes a complete example that does reproduce the problem. Note that there are lots of files called thesis.sty. Please provide a link to the one you are using.

comment PDF randomly does not show parts of the text without errors in compilation
The behaviour of TeX can be quite unpredictable if it tries to plough through errors, so I thought this might be the problem. If you don't have any errors elsewhere in the document, I have no idea what's going on.

comment How do I change the default font size?
It's worth noting that the extsizes classes (extarticle, extreport, etc.) support font sizes from 8pt to 20pt.
