    Same problem still exists in 2019.4.15f1 . As a workaround: Pressing ESC and SPACE after clicking the color node opens the dialog. Clicking the color with CTRL pressed seems to also open the dialog.

    Workaround (Fast) => Press CRTL* before click;
    *If don't work try use ALT or SHIFT. This steps was tried only in Windows;

    Unity marked the other post as duplicate even though it had more votes...

    Anyway, as I commented on the previous one:

    Temporary workaround:

    TL;DR: Copy the color from a different color picker and paste it in the property.

    1. Create a new material.
    2. Use the base map / albedo color picker to set your desired color.
    3. Close the color picker.
    4. Right click the color picker (the color box you must click to open the color picker).
    5. Click "Copy".
    6. Right click the shader property color picker.
    7. Click "Paste".

    Hope this may help you until it gets fixed.
