Attribute table fields constantly changing appearance?

Recently, my fields in Pro starting changing width after queries.  My attribute tables became justified and I'm hoping there is a way to change them back that I haven't found online.  I do some data entry and having to scroll to the end of a table is extremely frustrating.  I usually shrink the fields so that I can see the entire table on one monitor.  

This is just a very simple example, but all the fields expand in appearance after running a query.  Here's a simple example:

State field prior to a query:


State field after query:


If anyone knows how to set these field lengths permanently please let me know.

I'm having the same problem with the widths of the columns (fields) in my attribute table changing unexpectedly. This started occuring after I upgraded Pro to version 2.8.2. I have noticed this behavior under these situations:

  • Calculate a field value (doesn't matter which field)
  • Stop the edit session

Here are screenshots that illustrate the changing column (field) widths under the above situations:







This behavior affects any attribute table that I have the focus on. It is really annoying, as I have to constantly resize the widths of the columns to get them back to my optimal view. It really seems like a bug in the software.

Can anyone else replicate this behavior?

Attribute tables jumping to different records, fields resizing, etc. was a major problem until a few versions ago (don't remember which).   I remember all of the problems were finally fixed by an update in 2020, maybe 2.5.2.  It was a major reason I didn't use Pro on a regular basis until that update.  Really disappointing to see this is back.
