Pressing TAB edits file during DELETE FILE confirmation dialogue

Steps to reproduce

  • Have a pane open in edit mode
  • Click vertical tripple dot
  • Choose “Delete file”
  • Repeatedly press “Tab” key
  • Tabs are written into underlying file

Expected result

Ideally, tab would navigate among available options/buttons.

But most importantly, Dialogue should block modification of underlying window as described in

Actual result

By use of keyboard, unexperienced user can cause a lot of unnoticed edits / data-destruction in greyed-out underlying window.
