You need to use the browser inspection tools to access it.

Do you have any add-ons installed?
Try disabling them and try again.

Ok it doesn't look like an add-on. I can edit other users but not this one.

What custom user fields do you have set up?

There seems to be an error with one of them related to "halo_masterchie...".

That's a really bizarre error - one that exists on Google all of 3 times, all in Russian for that matter...

I'm not sure why though. It's like there's some sort of shell expansion happening, but I have no idea why that would be the case to load a file...

I had a custom field setup to store the google plus profile and it had a value stored for this user. The validation setup was that it should be a URL.

So I changed the validation to none and then I was able to save the user. :confused:

Weird that I was able to save earlier with that custom field. I know this coz I had filled that field for this user myself using the admincp a month back.
