There are a number of modals which get affected by the same issue as T10120. T10120 and one other ticket has been resolved/closed as unsupported since they were reported on Bitnami or elsewhere. But this isn't just affecting the object-selector modal, it can affect any modal that seems to fetch remote data like reorder column modal.
I haven't tried on my mac yet but I got a vanilla preconfigured AWS instance with apache2 and was able to reproduce this in the first minute. I also tried a Bitnami instance with PageSpeed removed but was able to reproduce this right away.
I don't think this is a case of an external webserver mod, meddling with the JS. I think the order of the JS file loads matter. As a possible clue, In a Phacility instance the init, core and differential JS files were loaded in that specific order and in my tests, they can be loaded in any order.
Steps to Reproduce: From any workboard, click on Manage Board, Reorder columns.
Expected Result: Able to reorder column
Actual Result: Cannot click on columns to reorder, instead they simply become selectable.
