>latest camera raw version
Would it kill you to type the version number in full? Some folks claim to have the latest, but they're often wrong.
You're one version behind. 10.5.6 is out.
Sounds like you have corrupted preference files somewhere.
Create a fresh, new account and log in as a different user. Does the problem go away or persist?
My Raw software version is 188.8.131.52
Bridge is 184.108.40.2064
What about my question in #2?

Sorry, just done it now. I logged in with new account and its working - cool. So, what can I do with my account - how can I identify the problem?
I've updated to mac 10.5.6 now too, but still does it.

Well, now you know for sure it's not the program, not your OS install and not your hardware.
That means you have some corrupted preferences files in your regular account. Start by trashing your camera raw preferences, then Photoshop's.
Many thanks for this - its just clicked what I did - I rearranged the layout of the interface of Bridge and saved it. So, just now I reverted back to the 'Essentials' default layout interface and all is working now. So, there must be some bug in Bridge when you create your own work space.
Oh well, just use the default layout work space now, many thanks again for your help :-)
Just to let you know - I think I've identified the problem - I created my own work space and ticked the button to allow Bridge to start at log in. This some how disables the white balance tool. I closed Bridge and then opened it up again with my work space and the tool works !!! It seems the log in option is the issue.
I'm not seeing any of those issues, Danny.
Well, I have tested it again and the preference to start Bridge at log in, seems to be doing it. I ticked this off, closed down and started Bridge manually and the tool fully works OK with my work space. But could be something else, I don't know, but starting Bridge at log in on my computer seems to be this.
The saved work space I have set up as follows - on the left side of screen I have placed my favorites, folders, collections panels at top left, then underneath these, I have placed filter, metadata, keywords panels. I have no panels on the right and just have big thumbnails on the main area.
Anyway, thanks again, I can live with this now, I just start Bridge manually :-)
>the preference to start Bridge at log in, seems to be doing it.
There were early versions of Bridge that caused the cursor to flicker when moved across the Camera Raw preview if you started Photoshop first. Since then, I'm in the habit of Launching Bridge first, but not automatically at log-in.
