Unhandled Exception (1) while login to vSphere Client

After login to vSphere Client, you get below error:

Unhandled Exception (1)
Unfortunately, we hit an error that we weren't expecting.
The client may continue working, but at this point, 
we recommend refreshing your browser and submitting a bug report.

As far as I know it affects ESXi 5.5, ESXi 6.0 Web interface­ (ESXi Embedded Host Client) and ESXi 6.5 vSphere Client.

Unhandled Exception (1) Unfortunately, we hit an error that we weren't expecting.

Resolution

According to VMware KB 2149798 it is a known issue. It is resolved in VMware ESXi 6.0 Patch Release 5 and in Host Client 1.19.0 or later. Seems only Chrome is affected, so as workaround you can use different browser (Internet Explorer or Firefox). You can also hit the [ESC] Key which will clear the error. There is also another option. I noticed, this error appears only when you press [ENTER] after typing login and password. If you click [Log in] button, you will login without this error message.
