Hi @daniela1104 and welcome to WordPress Trac,

I can't reproduce the issue on my side when I click on the install button in the "more details" modal box (see animated screenshot below).

Could you provide more context concerning the issue? Does it happens in a WordPress fresh install?

I've installed WordPress a week ago or so (rookie); same thing happens on FF and Safari. Using Mojave, 10.14.5. Can't think of anything else..I've disabled also all the extensions from Chrome/cleared cache.
There are workarounds, I just wanted to see if it’s only me.

If there is anything else I can do, please reach out.
I’m gonna continue my work day.

@daniela1104, I can't replicate the same issue in Google Chrome Version 76.0.3809.100 on Linux. Install plugin working fine for me also.
