Short description of error
Picture gets preselected when selecting "Open image" on image node. You have to right click to clear the selection.

The selection is on the right side of picture.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
1: Open shader editor and add a image texture node
2: Select "Open Image" on the image node, go to a folder with a bunch of photos and select one.
3: Duplicate the object with this material
4: Select "make a single-user copy" on material
5: Select the "Open image" button on the image texture node to select a new picture

This should trigger the preselection.

I'm unsure what the problem is here. It is supposed to select the current texture image.

IE if the node had "test.png", it will have that selected when you got to select a new one.

@Sebastian Parborg (zeddb) Look at the screenshot again, in the middle to the right side. The "File Selector Drop" gets enabled and tries to "preselect" the picture at the location of the cursor. You can see the "blue 9" is selected, which is "blue_9.png" . I can make a video if needed? Pretty quick to make as "Invalid".

Sebastian Parborg (zeddb) lowered the priority of this task from Needs Triage by Developer to Needs Information from User.

Sure, make a video with the latest blender beta to show case this issue more clearly. I don't seem to have any problems on my end. So perhaps this is a windows issue.

@Sebastian Parborg (zeddb)

OK, it still happens with a build from today. Here's a video showing the issue.

Sebastian Parborg (zeddb) raised the priority of this task from Needs Information from User to Confirmed, Medium.

I'm guessing that the file browser does not get the button release event and is stuck on button down.

It only goes into drag and drop when I move the mouse after the dialog pops up.

I have that issue too. It sometimes crashes blender if you double click an image while that is happening.
