browser display has two images, one over the other

Some sites, not all, pages are displayed with dual images. If the page has some text in a different color, that text is often on top of the other text, out of position on the screen. For example, if the black text is followed by some more text that is blue colored, the blue text is not shown as following the black text on the screen where it was intended to be, but is actually on top of the black text, partially obscuring it. If there happens to be a button under there, it cannot be pushed.
Even on this site,this page, the button "Attach this File", which is in blue font, is partially obscuring another button which I cannot read
this is difficult to describe, I can only hope that my poor attempt is enough to give someone enough information to come up with a solution.
Thanks!

try altering your tablet browser settings, for 'User Agent' select 'Desktop',
see if that makes a difference,
(if not, please state which browser you are using)

Bart-
That seemed to work! I was using the Samsung browser, btw.
So- why did that work and why isn't it shown in the manual?
Anyway, you did good and I appreciate it. Thank you much.

Well, maybe not after all! The fix worked as advertised for a few days, but not any longer. I can detect no difference at all between desktop view and normal view on any site I've used. So what changed?? Btw, my iPad does not do this, ever. Score one for Apple, but I'd prefer to use my Samsung, it does most other things better. Frustrating!
