Issues with disappearing links on the site.

So I'm having an issue when I browse here.
I'm using an iPhone 4S with the latest iOS7.
When I do a search for new posts, go into forum sections, or subsections, links are disappearing. However, I can still "click" on the portion of the screen where the link should be.
This has also happened on my laptop running windows 7 using Firefox. On my laptop if I refresh it will return to normal but I can't seem to fix it on my phone.


Here's a couple screen shots.

Is anyone else having this issue? Any help would be appreciated.
And please, no one tell me to use the mobile version. I hate the mobile version.

Thanks

Hmm. Seems like this issue only comes up if I try scrolling before the page is 100% fully loaded.
When I come to the site after being gone a few hours, I normally hit New Posts first thing.
If I let the search page 100% fully load it won't have an issue. After that, when I go into threads from the search, no issues.

If I scroll and mess up the search page before it fully loads, all the other pages will freak out like pictured.
Sometimes a refresh of the page I'm on helps, mostly it doesn't.


Very perplexing. Never seen anything like it.

This is weird, and tech has been notified.
Not seeing this issue on two Android based devices:
HTC One
Kindle Fire

I do not use the mobile plugin or an app, I use the devices stock browser.

I deleted the history in Safari on my iPhone 4S and the issue has temporarily gone away.
Did you guys do anything on the back end that might have solved it?

ETA: Would be weird if that fixed the issue. This wasn't happening on any other sites so it's odd.

I am not aware of any changes that have been made in the back ground. The issue is still happening to me periodically on both my Galaxy S4 and my Galaxy Tab 3, so i know it is not just tied to one piece of electronics..

edit:
here is some of the stuff I have seen:






If anyone is seeing this issue please let us know in this thread so we can keep the tech guys updated..

Please let us know the device and what OS you are seeing it on.
IE: IpHone 5s, IOS 7 etc

Glad I'm not the only one that's getting this issue. Now I know it's not just my hardware and whatnot.
