Unable to control the map extent in ArcGIS Online

The Fall, 2013 issue of ArcUser provided directions on how to set the initial map extent of a web map saved to ArcGIS Online and then opened in the map viewer:

However, this does not work for me.  No matter what lat/long values I enter, the web map's extent is always reset to 180,-75.9736,180,84.1787.

In addition, when I click the option to create the embed code, it always defaults to the incorrect value above.

Any advice?  Thanks!
