I just tested it with Opera web browser and it works fine. Why are there so many “skip navigation links”?

Hello, would anybody be willing to have a look at a webpage off-line for me. It’s having similar issues with drop-down boxes, but I don’t think it’s related to JavaScript.

 

I’ve never seen this particular behavior before, so I just want to understand what’s going on.
