Escape (ESC) to exit Camera Raw - not working since update?

Since the latest update to Camera Raw, the ESC key no longer "exits" the window (back to Bridge for me). is this intentional? Was a quick and often-used way for me to cancel edits and get back to Bridge.

See: https://blogs.adobe.com/jkost/2020/07/a-complete-guide-to-shortcuts-for-adobe-camera-raw-2.html
All I see there about Escape Key is:
Tap Escape to reset the crop and dismiss the Crop tool.

I believe it is shift-escape now.   Why use one finger when you can use two.    12.4 may be Alt-shift-esc  with 12.5 cmd-alt-shift-esc.

Based on recent events we'll probably need 2 factor authentication to be allowed to exit the program ... and it won't work properly (I STILL have issues with Ps thinking it's installed on 3 PCs when I only have it on 2) (2 of the PCs listed are the same PC - and several hours on the phone to Adobe ... wasted several hours of my life). #Sigh.

Their greatest fan will probably now try to tell us that this is a feature, and that it's my fault.

Actually you can install these Adobe app's on as many machines as you wish, a mix of Mac and Windows. You can only have two activations per license. Which is a feature. 

I've never had issues activating and deactivating multiple Mac's but of course, you need a net connection. Windows? Anything is possible....

Been this way for at least a decade.

Don't bet on it.... 
I can guarantee based on actual usage, that's not going to happen.

Genuine question - when would it be useful to alt-click open from ACR - without updating metadata?
