Mac Help Menu Type-In Field

As of Photoshop CC (14.1.2 x64), the type-in help menu no longer works on my Mac (10.8.5). Specifically, when I open the type-in field (Cmd-Shift-?), type in a menu item, (e.g., "Image Size") and use the down arrow to select it (e.g., "Menu Items | Image Size..."), the GUI properly highlights the menu item location, but pressing Return/Enter no longer executes the menu item. For the sake of comparison, this problem does not appear to happen in Illustrator CC (17.0.0) or Flash CC (13.0.1.808). It's a huge productivity problem, as it is one of the fastest ways to get to specific menu items without creating a collection of arcane shortcuts.
