Responsive works fine on all devices: desktop, laptop, android phone, android tablet, iphone, ipad. 

On ipad, if you change from portrait to landscape, or landscape to portrait, responsive works fine.

However, if you then change back to the original orientation from when the page loaded, responsive quits working until you navigate to different page.  Then it's the same thing all over again. 

This only happens on my ipad.  On my phones and other tablets, i can flop them back and forth all day and the site renders fine.   

Can someone with an ipad check this for me?

The only ipad I have for checking is a gen 1, which is stuck at iOS 5.1.1.   :-[

Any ideas on what the cause may be?

Thx.

Thanks for the reply. 
Can anyone with a real ipad confirm that responsive layout stays functional during multiple changes between portrait and landscape?

byline: iPad1 came out in April 2010; ios6 came out in June 2012.  Not compatible at 2 yrs!  Good ol' apple!   8)
