Why do my alerts look like this, and I have to refresh to make it clickable?

    is the problem my iPhone 11 or safari or am I a dummy?

    While I do not have a solution, I have had the same experience which seems to resolve itself eventually.
    iPhone 8/Safari

    I find it difficult to view this site on mobile due to the banner ads,etc

    Please note, I am not complaining about ads but simply stating my experience & opinion.

    I get this every now and then on both my laptop and phone. I think it's due to having the font and/or zoom bumped up in the settings. I can change in both the browser and the phones settings.

    So the screen ends up basically missing a line causing the search icon to over lay the alerts. You can’t click alerts without refreshing. The happens on my iPhone 11 promax, and my iPhone 12 promax, using safari?
    Should I switch to tapatalk (ignore that question it’s sarcasm)…

    I have this from time to time on my iPhone with Chome as the browser. A quick reload has always fixed it for me - sometimes even just rotating the phone from portrait to landscape and then back will set things straight.
