Photoshop: Image ruined during quick selection/select and mask

I was quick selecting, then clicked Select and Mask and BAM! Photoshop applied random patterns to ALL masks and raster layers and SAVED the file. The worst part, I couldn't go back in history! Luckily Photoshop didn't touch my corrections in masks and raster layers, just added some crazy stuff of its own. So I just had to individually clean all layers. This was a happy end, but I lost time. Weirdest thing that ever happened to me in Ps.

Are you using the PS CC 2019?

There's a huge problem with PS CC 2019. I've been using PS for over 10 years and this version has to be the most disgusting upgrade ever. It's practically unusable and most of us (according to Photoshop Family topics} have gone back to using PS CC 2018. I have loaded the new version and I have tried to use it but all it's doing is causing me grief and wasted time. I've reported many bugs.

I also find this last version inferior. It is simply slower. When drawing with a default brush on masks, it lags every now and then as if this is some heavy computational operation. I need to learn how to roll back to 2018, have never gone back

John - On your CC app, click on Apps on bar, then where your Photoshop CC (v20.01) click the arrow next to open and it drops down, click manage, then other versions. See if that helps.

I've realised that I am using 20.0.1, not 19, so I decided to keep it for the time being. Also, the tip from Hannah below. So, I'll keep on, but if the issues persist, will roll back, thank you for showing me how)

Hi John,

I'm wondering if your issue was related to comp core. It sounds like you installed a previous version of Photoshop, but if you still have 20.0.1 installed, would you please go to Preferences > Performance and then check "Enable Legacy Compositing"? 

Also, what OS are you using? It looks like a similar issue that was happening on Mac 10.14 (in which case, you might simply need to update to 10.14.1).

Thanks,
Hannah

Hi Hannah,
Thanks for the message.
No, I decided not to switch back since I realised that I'm running Ps 20.0.1, not 19. Legacy compositing is unchecked.
I'm on OS 10.14.1
I was also experiencing a situation when turning layers and/or masks on/off wound not show any change. This issue seems to be gone now, perhaps because of upgrade of Ps and OS.
If issues persist, I'll try checking Enable Legacy Compositing as you suggested.
Thank you again.
