Can't remove External Storage

Expected behaviour

On the browser interface, in Settings/Storage, I have a Local storage which I want to delete. There should be a ‘delete’ or ‘remove’ option but I can’t see any way of removing it.

Actual behaviour

I try deleting the text in the three fields (Folder Name, Configuration, Users) but it won’t stick. There isn’t a way of applying the change.

Steps to reproduce

  1. In the OC browser interface, add an External Storage
  2. Try to remove

You don’t see the gearwheel- and trashbin-icon at far right of the storage line?
Need to scroll horizontally?
