Photoshop: misc complaints

Why is there this awful inconsistency between different Adobe products once again? I was happy with CS5 also because the products looked pretty much the same. You abandoned Photoshops unnecessary bar full of pretty useless buttons and that ́s great. But why for God's sake am I missing a button to open Bridge and one to rearrange document windows as well? There ́s still plenty of room inside the normal bar to integrate them. You do so inside Illustrator and InDesign. So why are they missing in Photoshop where I need it the most? It ́s a really strange and inconsistent design desicion and I don't understand it at all. Bring them back, they don't take up any unnecessary space, they are very useful and then Photoshop will look more like the other apps where for some strange reason you show them.
Another thing I'm not too happy about is the strange Mini Bridge. I still use the oldschool explorer window in most cases because the Mini Bridge is slow. But what I really don't like about it is that you turned off the ability to change the thumbnail size when the Mini Bridge is docked to one of the window sides. Why is that? Only if I make the Mini Bridge a floating window can I change the thumbnail sizes. That ́s pretty weird, isn't it? Many people thought it ́s a bug when they tried the Beta of PSCS6. And it really bugs me. It ́s a good idea to make the Mini Bridge less crammed with useless stuff but being able to change the thumbnail size is so integral that you shouldn't have turned it off and for some weird reason only make it possible to do so when the Mini Bridge is undocked.
Ok, one more thing I'd like to suggest is trying to make Photoshop a useable tool for texturing 3D objects. It ́s not that important to me but the possibility to do so is really cool. Instead of using ZBrush or BodyPaint to texture 3D objects, why not just use Photoshop and all it's cool Brushes etc.? The thing is, nobody really uses it for that because it ́s so damn slow and the textures get applied in a very ugly and unreliable way. When applying paint strokes, they often get distorted, the brushes lag and so on. Again, you probably don't really want to compete with 3D texturing software but 3D is now a part of Photoshop for quite some years so why not make it a little better, speed up the performance and allow artists to use Photoshop in a way which is now pretty much impossible, due to the bad way it behaves and performs. It'll be really cool to be able to texturize 3D models directly inside PS without having to project 2D textures onto them like in 1999.
And one last thing I have in mind is this: When doing photo manipulations it is most often necessary to equalize the colors, saturation, contrast and so on. And though PS offers the most advanced tools of doing so manually, why not offer an automated way of doing it?

I did so with my other suggestions for future versions of Photoshop. This one is half related and then there are 2 more suggestions. I got a bit lazy of seperating it all. I will split it into a complaint about the new UI and the Mini Bridge and I'll seperate the two suggestions.
