Crop Tool Undo - I would like to see the crop tool undo go back to the point where I selected the crop and not back to having no crop selected. That way if I only have to tweak the crop I have a starting point and don't have to reselect the crop from scratch. I might do a crop 3 or 4 times to get it right. Whereas if undo took me back to my original crop selection - a quick move and I'm done.

Oh yes, unfortunately one of the super trivial things missing in Photoshop. Even if "delete cropped pixels" is NOT (!!!!!) selected, it is not possible after cropping - saving psd - coming back to computer - open psd - than UNDO a crop, even if Psd still does know original canvas and image size. :( This is ridiculous.... Affinity Photo has no such problems.

Unchecking 'Use Classic Mode' in the Crop Tool options (gear icon) allows recovering the original crop. Classic mode reverts to PS CS5 behavior, which is causing the issue you are seeing. It may be a bug, but I'm not sure how it worked in PS CS5.
