Photoshop: Can't cmd+tab to web browser (Chrome ver: 16.0.912.75) from CS6 (OSX/10.6.8)

When cmd+tabbing between Photoshop CS6 and Google Chrome, Photoshop document windows remain visual on top (but inactive). The web browser window is called up over other applications, but remains behind Photoshop. The problem seems to only happen when switching to Chrome.

Photoshop ver 13.0.1
Mac OSX ver. 10.6.8
Chrome ver: 16.0.912.75

The problem is still here, every day... When will we have a fix? You're working on it since more than two months now...

I reported this workflow-killing bug half a year ago on every support channel and still no fix. This is ridiculous!

Latest version of Photoshop CC (2015.5), just released. Updating now. Will it fix this work-flow crippling bug? Drum roll please...

Please Adobe, read my final thoughts to this long lasting bug and "support" history:

The lack of self-critical tech support and very bad and rare communication made me feeling sad and frustrated and lead to very long bug fixing timings like this 6 months. According to adobes support employees this Photoshop CMD-TAB Bug with Chrome, was not their business, but only Googles Bug. Even if so many customers had posted evidence, that it was a Photoshop Bug.

The Open Resize Bug also took 9 Months to fix and Adobe kept pointing the finger to Apple. But it was also magically fixed by the Photoshop CC 2015.5 Update...

I hope in future these annoying bugs get please fixed much faster!
