Acrobat X Pro hangs

I am trying to use Acrobat X Pro (10.1.4) on an Apple MacBook Pro running Mountain Lion (10.8).  When I launch Acrobat and select "Combine Files into PDF", I am shown the add file screen.  When I click the "Add Files" button, I am offered to select a file from my Documents folder. If I try to change the source directory, that is, navigate to a subdirectory of Documents, Acrobat hangs and I have to force it to quit.


Sometimes, instead of showing me my Documents directory, Acrobat hangs when I click on "Add Files."


I have Java SE 6 installed and the preference set to use the 64-bit version.


What troubleshooting steps can you suggest?

    I am using Mountain Lion but i am not seeing any such Acrobat hang issue.

    Do you get a crash dialog on force quitting Acrobat? Please share the crash log here.
