I haven't been able to reproduce that issue in the control panel. What browser and operating system are you using when it occurs? What button is highlighted when you press enter in step 5.2?

Windows 8.1 Google Chrome Version 57.0.2987.133 (64-bit). There's a slight blue glow around the "grant access to" textbox I'm typing the path into and pressing enter there results in the error. Tabbing 4 times to cycle focus through "Read only" -> "Read/Write" -> "Cancel" -> "Save" then hitting enter is successful.

Thank you! I was testing it incorrectly. I see the problem now, and it has been reported to development. Sorry for the trouble!

This control panel issue has been resolved. If you see the issue again, clear your browser's cache.

Hi, sorry for the delay. I'm unable to reproduce the original issue now. However, I cannot type anything in the input box at all, pressing enter triggers the save action with a warning about granting home directory access but any other keyboard input including ctrl+v is ignored completely. I can right-click->paste or use autofill to populate with a prior entry though in which case everything seems to work proper

Tested on Windows 10 Education, Chrome Version 58.0.3029.110 (64-bit) and Microsoft Edge 25.10586.672.0 Microsoft EdgeHTML 13.10586
