"Static" Layout Mode causes Trouble on Mobile Devicesstatic layout mode mobile smartphones trouble bug mobile devices

I just realized that I used the wrong site layout mode ("Responsive with Pixel Width"): This causes the page to "shrink" when the user views the page in a browser window that's smaller than the site size (1100 pixels). Means the columns of all three areas (main content area, primary siebar, secondary sidebar) are displays smaller tahn they should. That looks terible!
That's why I switched to "Sttic with Pixel With" mode - that's better ... but only on desktop browsers.
When you watch the site on a mobile device (smartphone), this "Static" mode causes not only a black background, but this backgroud lays partially over tho two sidebar areas! Please see the screenshot attached. The original site look you'll find here: mobiwatch.de
So my question is: is this a bug? Or how can I make Pagelines show a static page that looks good on mobile devices, too?
Thanks in advance!

Okay, made it! Just changed the black background colour to white.
Don't know what's the difference concerning the layout, but it works - that's all that counts ... )

Static width generally means static, ie fixed.
So unless your mobile has 1200px width screen it will look weird
