strange bug (?) in Excel: I need to F2 + press ENTER to make the results of the formulas work

Last Modified: 2015-02-26
With the attached file, why do you need to edit (double click) the cell B2 and press ENTER to make the formula in cell F2 show the correct result (18:14:32)?

How can I fix the results in F all at once without editing and pressing ENTER on every single cell in B?

(tested on Excel 2010)
