I am attempting to create a new permissions group which I have been able to do in the past.  I should be set up as a site collection admin.  When I hit the option "Create Group" I get the screen to create a new group but clicking "Create" does nothing, it just stays on the page.  I also notice that I am unable to edit the "About Me" field which seems to indicate something is wrong (screenclip).

I actually figured this out.  To be able to use this functionality, I have to run the browser in compatibility mode!
