I can access the page normally with AdBlock disabled and when bypassing
my local filtering proxy (privoxy). It seems that the "white-out"
behavior is in some way connected to the Flash ad in the page. The site
breaks for me as soon as I disable the FlashBlock add-on, even with
AdBlock and privoxy re-activated. However, when I use FlashBlock I can
activate the ad after the page has loaded without any detrimental effect
(other than having to look at their advertisement drivel).
