Hi Veloci,


I recently ran into a similar situation where the page would load fine but a couple of hidden elements were resulting in 404's which in turn caused the 'Invalid HTTP response'.


I used developer tools on your listed landing page and may have found something similar.  Open the image in a new tab for full view and you'll see in the bottom right, there are a couple of elements that appear to be resulting in a 404 response.  


Now, I can't guarantee that this is the issue, but it's something I would definitely check into.  You may also want to contact support directly and see if they can also confirm that this is indeed the issue.
