- Start Photoshop CS6 OSX (10.6.8) (or maybe any other sys/conf)
- Create new/ Open image with a non sRGB color profile
- Drag in an image directly from your internet browser (firefox) to photoshop cs6
- Requester appears that a Profile Mismatch occured (even if 'ask' in prefs are off.. bug 1?)
- Click ok (do not tick 'Don't show again'.. yet*..)
- Try to do anything in Photoshop.. nothing happens with the canvas.. every option/button can be clicked but the mouse won't cooperate..

* If you click 'don't show again' you lose the info, but afterward the bug can't interfere anymore...

makes sense?

Hmm, I can't reproduce this on MacOS 10.7.4.
But I do see that the profile mismatch dialog appears over the browser instead of Photoshop becoming active.

I guess that's the issue.. because of the 'unforeseen' requester, photoshop no longer has focus on the canvas and has difficulty regaining it..
maybe 'the mouse won't cooperate' is badly describing the problem.
If you would try to select something you can get the selection button but dragging a selection area on the canvas is not possible (at my end at least ;)

anyhow.. after clicking 'don't show again' I can't test any further anymore..

In Photoshop prefs, there's a button at the bottom of the general prefs panel to reset the Don't Show Again settings.
