In previous versions of Photoshop, when right-clicking (or control-clicking) on the artboard, the drop down menu would be centered on the layer most relevant to the area in which you clicked. I found it pretty easy to locate my page elements this way. In CS5, this drop down menu doesn't seem to have nearly the degree of accuracy as it did before. Why is this? I'd say it's a step backward – and it's made things more difficult for me when working in big files that have been created by other people (wherein I don't know the layer structure).
