Unable to load Workflow Page

I am trying to access Workflow page of a project by going through Project's Administration tab -> Workflows on the left sidebar. However, whenever I try to access this page, I keep getting following error.

"The JIRA server was contacted but has returned an error response. We are unsure of the result of this operation."

Could you tell me how to resolve this?

Thanks

Hi Kidon,

Could you try the link on Chrome, and use the developers tool panel to see what error messages are displaying?  Is this the only page that you are having trouble reaching?

Cheers,
Gary
