Photoshop/Bridge CS6: ACR update 8.4 removes "Open in Camera Raw..." in Bridge

As the title specifies: as of this morning, after having updated Adobe Camera Raw plugin (from 8.3 to 8.4), a right mouseclick on the file in Bridge no longer gives the menu option "Open in Camera Raw". If I pick the option Open with... and then select Photoshop CS6, the file will open in ACR, because of a preference I set in Photoshop's File handling preferences.
I am running Photoshop CS6 on a late 2012 iMac running OSX 10.9.2.
Please advise.

RE: Camera Raw 8.4: no metadata or Camera Raw edit in Bridge CS6: There is no Plugin file in Library/Application Support/Adobe/Plug-Ins/CS6/File Formats folder, to put the 8.4 into. I'm on Maverick. Help! Bridge is now useless to me.

That is the directory that contains the Camera Raw plugin.

Make sure you are looking in /Library not ~/Library.

Strangely enough, when choosing File>Open..., ACR is inactive as well...

Les, it is possible that ACR 8.4 was not fully installed correctly. Please email me at mqi@adobe.com, I will probably dropbox you a plugin and put it in the correct ACR plugin path to see if that resolves this problem. Thanks.

I have installed the latest ACR plug in that fixed the issue with ACR not showing up in Bridge, but now some files are getting converted way too brightly from .DNG to .JPG. They look fine as DNG files but the subsequently converted JPG looks about 10 stops too bright. Please help. I'll email you an example.
Thanks.

I have the same problem, but there is much more going on. RAW tumbnails I adapted from the rough look. The previews are all run horizontally and are not to view on fullscreen. See my topic.

Meanwhile, Michelle sent me a new plugin that I had to install manually. Any way: problem solved. Both by rightclicking and by using the File-menu, I can open any file in Adobe Bridge CS6 in Camera Raw.
Thanks for this rapid intervention!
The files are definitely different: on the left the new one supplied by Michelle, on the right the old one (downloaded from Adobe).

Thanks Les. I will send Michelle also an email. Perhaps it is also solved my problem.

Raises hand too! Bridge is virtually useless at this point. All ACR adjustments (sidecar) are gone or ignored.

Me too. EXIF not read from NEF files, DNG previews very small, takes ages to build thumbnails, open in Camera raw greyed out, etc......

The link is for reverting to ACR 8.3; looks like ACR 8.4 won't run on OSX 10.6.x (Snow Leopard). However, the issue that I reported and that meanwhile has been fixed by a new installation of the 8.4 plugin, occurred on OSX 10.9.2 (Mavericks).
I hope Adobe will publish an article about that as well.
