Photoshop: First number field of an adjustment layer is selected, whenever I click on it – which blocks any short cuts/key controls.

New bug since CC 2014:
Whenever I click on an adjustment layer like "hue/saturation" or "selective color correction", which has fileds for numbers, then the first number field is automatically active.
For example at a "hue/saturation"-layer the field for hue is grey marked (which means, it is ready to change its numbers). You need alway to press the "enter"-key to deactivate it.
Why is this a stupid bug: It blocks all short-cuts, control keys and the possibility quickly to change the transparency of a layer (for e.g. on 50% by pressing the "5").
No chance to go quickly through layers with key controls, whenever you get on such a layer, first you have to deactivate the stupid number field.

Simply horror!

p.s. the same problem after confirming a layer transformation, when you have for e.g. the square section tool active.
Then often the number field for "soft edge" is activated. It always brings trouble ... this one is an old bug. But maybe you solve this one, too, now.
