Mobile text inputs reload the page on "focus"

I have a site that I am converting to mobile, I know it's not best to attack it this way, but I have no choice. Anyway, there is a search box at the top of the page that when clicked in from a mobile device (Android) seems to reload the page with the desktop screen version of the page instead of just zooming into the text input for input entry. What should I do to prevent this from happening? It ONLY happens on mobile (Android) devices as far as I can tell. Here is a link to my page.

It seems to only be a problem on devices running Android. IOs focuses on the textfied as it should. What should I check?

That link isn't good - it fails.

Please post a valid link and we'll take a look.

The link on the word "search" would only take you to the search page. What I see happening is the reload of the page the user is currently on except it is not using the mobile styles.
