  • I have had the same experience you are describing for some time. I couldn’t say exactly after which upgrade of WordPress it began.

    My response has just been to accept it and live with it, to just wait a few seconds until I can access Installed Plugins, manually activate the plugin, and then get back to my life.

    WordPress is enormously complex, and there is no future for those who work on it by leaving well enough alone or making it less so, so this is simply one of the minor prices to be paid for ever-changing software code.
