    Lightroom Freezing Intermittently




      I've read on these forums that there seem to be a lot of known bugs with Lightroom 6.  I wanted to check if this is one of them, or if I've encountered a new one and should report it.


      When advancing through images in the Library view, I notice that for certain JPGs, as soon as the image gets selected the UI becomes very unresponsive - the histogram doesn't update, the metadata doesn't update, and scrolling gets very clunky.  If I want (maybe 20-30 seconds), sometimes the histogram/metadata will refresh, but other times it wont.  If I select a different image, the system returns to normal responsiveness immediately.  I don't see this on all images; it seems to only occur on some JPGs, and never on RAW (CR2) files.  I've seen it both on older images in my library, as well as ones that I've freshly downloaded (i.e. from iPhone 6) and not made any changes to.


      I did contact Adobe support a month or two ago, and they suggested turning of the GPU acceleration and clearing some "temp" folders.  I did both of those and they seemed to help for a short time, but the issue kept reappearing (despite repeating what they suggested).


      This is really bizarre behaviour.  Has anybody else encountered it?  Are there any known workaround?  Should I re-report it as a bug?  I'm really surprised how unstable LR6 feels compared to the previous version I was using (LR3).
