Hi,

I have a site here:

http://www.cmspipe.com/dev

On mobile, when you scroll up and down the footer and header seem to flash. Any ideas what is causing this?

Thanks

I'm using a Windows phone 8.1 Nokia and I am not seeing the problem.

I tested on my Android 4.3 phone on Chrome, Firefox, Opera and the built-in browser and the only effect I noticed was the background image (of the blue boot?) resizing as you scroll down.  This could be the flash you're talking about?

its happening on my samsung galaxy and it happens on iphone aswell i believe.

The resizing of the bg image is a seperate issue actually.

When you scroll down, then scroll back to the top the header flickers back into place. (same with footer) Do you not see that?

Thanks

Nope, I don't see that on my galaxy s3 but it definitely does it on my iPad.

Are you using a css framework? I would highly recommend bootstrap http://getbootstrap.com

Also try changing the viewport meta tag

from:
<meta name='viewport' content='width=device-width, user-scalable=no'>

to:
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">

the viewport does strange things on iOS
