Short description of error

Hello wonderful Blender devs! It's probably not a bug but a papercut.

It seems that there is no way to remove Favorites folder that is no longer there in the File browser! Once folder is added to favorites and if it changed it’s path it just becomes greyed out and you can’t select it to delete it.

Here’s a screenshot, I had a folder called Godot projects and then changed it’s name and path using Windows’ File browser. Now the folder is greyed out and I can’t select it. I thought I could delete it by pressing minus key and eventually getting to it, but I ended up just deleting all my favorites folders and was left with a greyed out folder not being able to do anything about it. IMO, I should be able to select it and have a choice to update the path or just delete it.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  • Add folder to favorites
  • Turn off Blender
  • Change the path to the folder in your file browser
  • See that folder is being greyed out and can’t be selected to be deleted so that you could update the path to that folder

I know I can revert to factory defaults to fix that, but I don’t want to do it because of one invalid path! Setting up all my custom settings, hotkeys, theme, scripts is quite time consuming, so this is my paper-cut as of now. =((
