Can't get map of All Geocache Hides to work for a user

It works for some users but not others.  I am clicking on the All Geocache Hides link (https://www.geocaching.com/play/search?owner[0]=G%26N Geocachers&a=0&sort=PlaceDate&asc=False) for this user https://www.geocaching.com/p/default.aspx?guid=de91e6bf-de01-4a34-9202-e340f278c2bf&wid=1da28a7f-0860-47bc-b2a7-1e311b62cd0d&ds=2&tab=geocaches#profilepanel but the map just seems to hang and nothing ever comes up.  I have tried it for some other users (including myself) and it seems to work fine.  What am I doing wrong?

When I click on that user profile and then on all their hides I get a map of my home area. 👎

You are doing nothing wrong it's because of the & in his username.

Good thought, that may be the issue. However, the URL does properly escape the & with %26.  Also, I can get all their active hides on a map with this URL https://www.geocaching.com/play/map?lat=33.0449&lng=-95.4952&zoom=7&asc=true&sort=distance&hb=G%26N+Geocachers so it would seem the search should be possible.  I just can't get any that are archived (i.e. the complete list).

Thanks for verifying you can reproduce.  I get the same, sort of.  It zooms to my home area in the map but shows no caches in the list on the left.

As far as I know, one cannot get archived caches on the map, period.

Well then that kind of stinks.  I thought I used to be able to see a list of all of someone's hides even if those hides had been archived.  Now, it only takes me to a map instead of giving me a list so then I would have no way of seeing the entire list.  I am trying to do this to solve a puzzle cache that the user has that requires I check some information about old hidden caches of theirs which might have since been archived.

If you go into your Settings then select Preferences, there's a checkbox right at the bottom that selects showing search results directly on the map.

If you uncheck that, you'll then get a list of caches a player owns on their profile which includes their archived caches.
