Can't remove language, then screen gets stuck

I started the English from Spanish tree, but now I want to delete it. When I go to the delete screen in the settings, the Delete button is greyed-out.

The same thing happens if I try to delete my Spanish from English progress:

Once I'm on this screen, I'm unable to exit without refreshing the page. The url changes (for example, if I click on "Discussion" the url changes to http://www.duolingo.com/discussion) but the screen doesn't change.

This should now be fixed. Thanks for the report!

The screen doesn't get stuck any more, but the "Remove" button is still unavailable.

At this time, you can't remove a language if it is your only language.

I agree with this idea. However, French to English is not my only language. It just happens to be the only one I'm learning in that interface and I only started doing it by accident. Is there a way that I could delete French to English since it is not the only language that I'm learning? Thanks!

I just tried it out in IE9 and Chrome 31 and it was exactly the same. Couldn't click the delete button or leave the page without refreshing.

I'm not sure about the refresh thing but I definitely cannot delete my French to English language.

Safari for iOS but you cannot delete it on Google Chrome on my PC either. The button is unable to be clicked as shown above.

EDIT: I've just checked and like the others say, the screen freezes for me if you try to exit.
