I think it's possible the problem you're seeing is the result
of a problem in your profile. This is why the request to try
the page in a test profile.
For example, when I browse to that page, I don't see the same
problem you're seeing. The page seems to work correctly.
If you try it in a test profile and don't have the problem,
then you can starting looking at what in your profile may
be causing the problem.
