Bridge CC 2019 bug: Animated GIFs no longer play in the Preview panel.
There is no animation or option to play back the animation.
All I see is a single static image.

Does this preview? It works for me on Windows 7. Created in Photoshop.

As it should be.  Previews that play animations are annoying.  REALLY annoying.

Don't be a tool...
The whole point of a Preview window is to, y'know, preview the file...
The animation would only appear in the Preview window, not the Thumbnails list, so you would have had to deliberately click on / select the relevant image file to preview it.
If the file is animated, then you need to be able to see the animation. 
If the preview just makes it look like a static image, then it's not doing its job properly.

You should see this (ignore the Text Preview panel, that's a custom script I wrote.)

That's what I used to see in the previous version of Bridge! :-(
I don't see that anymore in the latest release!
