Clicking on Reload option log out ESXi web UI and you have to login to UI again.

This particular problem is fixed in ESXi build number 13981272 (ESXi 6.7 EP 10) OR later version. Refer KB  to know more about ESXi build version.
ESXi Patch download link
Select ESXi and version 6.7 then search to get latest patch.

The workaround is to press escape after opening the stack OR to import OVF using vCenter UI if host is part of vCenter, same for changing storage settings.
