Media queries don't work like I wish

Hi everyone,

I'm building a website (insider.harwindesigners.nl/dekruidendokter) and I added some media queries. The website responds just fine in the browser, but when I view the website on my phone (WP8.1 - IE11) it doesn't. Can someone spot what I'm doing wrong? Is it because I'm not using em's?

Thanks for the help!

Thanks for the help! It works! But I still have a problem... I know it is a problem with the icons from Google, but I don't know how to fix it. The icons appear to grow causing the website to get wide again. Do you know how to fix this? This is where the problem is:

<div class="arrow_drop_down_circle"> <a href="#content"><i class="material-icons">arrow_drop_down_circle</i></a> </div>

You could give it a static width like; width:125px !important; !important means that nothing will override that rule.
