     Hi Glenn Skinner,

    Based on my understanding of the issue, I tested in my environment, and it worked fine. 

    Perhaps this issue comes from the settings of the browser, if you are using the default Internet Explorer browser you can choose to lower the security level to make the content work properly. 

    For further troubleshooting, you could provide some screenshots the issue.

    Hi yeah still experiencing the issue I can't post images as it is for a customer but using your images.

    1st image where you see the table on right side. When i click to select a site collection the table on the right does not appear and we get no error. Then when we click ok to move to the second image to add primary or secondary administrators we get a message saying no site collection selected when it clearly has been.

    Note this does not happen for all sites some work fine. Also the affected sites are visible and you can browse to them and use them with no issues. Also i am a site collection admin on all the sites and i am in the farm admin group
