Strange image swapping behaviour

I have a very weird issue with a current build. On some devices various images are being displayed in totally the wrong area, its like they have been swapped with each other. For example I am using perch layouts to provide my footer. Within the footer are a bunch of social icons, these are hard coded so NOT perch elements. Above that on the home page I am using slick slider for a carousel. Randomly on one users iPad one of the social icons appears in the carousel and the carousel image is in the footer as a tiny image alongside the social icons! Very weird! Whats stranger is that on my laptop and mobile it all looks absolutely fine.

I have actually seen this same behaviour on another perch build but as the elements swapping were all Perch regions I put it down to user error on the part of the clients. Now I'm not so sure...

If this is only happening on some devices it isn't a Perch issue as Perch doesn't insert CSS or JavaScript into the front-end of your site nor do we attempt any device detection. If you have some JavaScript running then it is possible the behaviour comes from that.

Ok thats great to know...thanks for the reply.
