In Photoshop CS5 I can no longer select layer masks to edit from the layer palette. They have become disabled somehow. Has anyone else experienced this issue?

Do you mean targeting them by alt-clicking or loading them as Selections by command-clicking them?

Selecting them so that I can actually edit the mask. Usually a box appears round the mask in the palette so that I know its highlighted and therefore I can edit the mask itself. Making a selection isn't a problem.

I would recommend trashing the prefs (naturally after making sure all custom presets have been saved).
Edit: But be aware this may or may not help ...
