I don't see how to revert to the prior Bridge anywhere.
@JeffreyTranberry Dont know why but I just did an update and got the crop problem in ACR. I cant see a suggestion of a solution despite the post being many months old and a lot of complaints.
My problem is it drifts. If you do a very small adjustment its ok but going in past a certain point means it drifts. You go to crop, release where you want it and the crop continues to drift in or out depending on the direction you were pulling the crop border.
This doesnt happen unless you have a larger number of images in ACR.
Say you have 200 items in ACR. The first 50 will be fine and then the cropping becomes harder and harder and the drifting becomes more pronounced.
No sure about the CPU/GPU discussion below but is that the reason?
Virtually my only reason for using ACR was speed to get through basic event images quickly. I cant be adding this time. improvements are meant to be IMPROVEMENTS not something that leaves you wanting to throw the whole thing out.

I have found that most of my previous concerns using the cropping tool in Camera Raw have been resolved. It seems to be behaving quite well now. Although, it is perhaps, not as convenient to use as it was before the update 9 or 10 months ago, the functionality is there. Previously, one could zoom in on an image, center it to one's liking, then presence the C key to enter cropping mode and draw a cropping box to easily frame the image as seen on screen. Now, it is necessary to first enter the cropping mode, press and hold 'ALT + CONTROL' (on Windows) to temporarily allow scrubby zooming, drag to zoom the image, press and hold the space bar to use the hand tool to center the image, and then draw the cropping margins to fit the screen. It works nicely.
I can crop, but cant move the crop
Hardly practical when you have 500 images to process and a deadline. I see many downsides to that. The legacy crop is far more efficient with the CPU and much faster to set accurately for lots of images.

No I do no assume it, but they "might spot" it - and who knows they might even give us the features we had back.
The cropping is beyond bad. What I like though is the shift-esc »safety«.
1. Please make cropping like before, or at least give the possibility to enable the old behavior.
2. Let us zoom in before rotating and cropping without the crop tool zooming out again like mad. Why did you do that??
3. Please let us choose the background colors and the color of the crop frame. <3
4. Please disable the rotation animation. It just takes too long. When I have lots of reproductions that have to be rotated, I waste my time waiting for the slow rotation to occur. Why did you do that??

We need to keep pushing this, it does not seem to be getting through yet.
...it does not seem to be getting through...
...it does not seem to be getting through...
Ever constructive there Rodders, not to mention sounding like a stuck record whilst the number of people trying to get this issue sorted ticks higher. (Pot- kettle!)
Ashy: When someone comes here and makes a suggestion for the first time, it carries some weight.
When someone comes here and repeats the same thing over and over and over again, ongoing for 7 months, in multiple threads (stuck record) it carries no weight and invoke the insanity meme.
We can both stop; let's agree to.
I will continue to push for anything that I think will improve my and others efficiency and happiness, that will have no effect on anyone who does not want to use it.
Adding a checkbox (and underlying code) to be able to draw a rectangle and manipulate that rectangle to crop without moving or resizing the image underneath should not provide too much of a challenge to re-instate.
The ability to manipulate the workspace is hardly a massive ask for those of us that would prefer to match other programs, and customising KBSC would seem like the obvious thing to achieve in the mid term for a suite of programs that function in such an intergraded way.
You are more than welcome to stop trying to put me down, but I doubt you will.
This forum needs a complaint button on posts. I'm tired of seeing legit issues and suggestions answered with insults.
Yeah, they never put things back. It's just like, forget about the workflow that you used to use, get used to it. I'm still struggling with the loss of functionality when using an Apple magic mouse in ACR. When zoomed in to 100% or any size where the image is bigger than the window, scrolling (left right-up down) while using the adjustment brush is no more. Instead, scrolling now changes the size of the brush! Anyone have a fix for this? I haven't been able to fine one...
The crop tool completely disappears in my (up-to-date) Camera Raw interface

@Lance023 first thing I tried. Doesn't help...
How can we improve?
