This bug can happen if I click on the Fx symbol in a layer, or click on the color picker icon inside one of the effects (Gradient especially). All of a sudden Adobe launches several online help windows. I saw someone mention this bug last month, but he/she didn't get an answer.
I'm using CC on a Windows 7 machine with a Microsoft Wireless 3000 keyboard/mouse and a USB Wacom tablet. I notice that sometimes my mouse is very laggy while the tablet works fine, and I wonder if there might be an additional lag in the keyboard that is causing Photoshop to think I'm typing or clicking something when I'm not. I don't remember if I'm clicking with the pen or the mouse when the bug happens; I'll try to notice if it happens again.
Is there any way I can avoid this bug? Thanks so much.
This bug has been fixed. Go to Help/Updates and get latest version.
Thanks for the quick response! It's funny, but the bug started happening right after Photoshop updated itself yesterday. I've restarted the computer and tried to recreate the bug, and haven't had any problems yet.
I believe that bug was only fixed in photoshop cs6 (126.96.36.199) and probably the next update for photoshop cc (photoshop 14) will have the fix.
