Seems to be a VisualEditor and/or Translate thing as this isn't happening without VE. Furthermore when attempting to edit that particular page in VE, there's a notice stating that "You are editing a translatable page. Editing these in this editor is not yet officially supported."

Not to do with translate. VE expects navigation tabs to come before firstHeading, in Timeless they are after so that get treated like a sub heading and get greyed-out and disabled.

The easiest fix would be to move #mw-page-header-links above #firstHeading and then visually re-order then with CSS.

Yeah, that sort of thing never ends well when you need to handle different amounts of content (i18n string lengths) or different screen sizes (responsiveness). So if that's the easiest, just how bad are the other options?
