A number of third party extension show this message when trying to select an item from the list to perform an action.
This is caused by a change of the platform between Beta1 and Beta2 and was not noticed by extension developers in the Beta2 and RC releases. This change broke backwards compatibility for selecting the items in the list.
- Ask the extension developer to release a new version, or
- Install the plugin from this forum item 
A patch has been created to fix the backwards compatibility in 2.5.1
