Bridge: Preview Color Is Wrong?

I downloaded the newest version of Bridge today and the color of the thumbnails is accurate but the color of the preview is off compared to the thumb. Unusable unless there is something I don't have set correctly. Already set preferences and googled the problem. No mention anywhere.

Thanks,I was wondering if it might be a Mac - problem (or High Sierra) ... Well, at least not exclusively High Sierra ...

Do you have multiple monitors, or just one?

Have you tried it with one monitor disconnected? I have 3 and disconnected two of them but the problem remained. In the past the multiple monitors caused problems like this and confused Bridge about what color profile to use for previews but I think this is a different problem.

No I haven't. I have downgraded to version 9.0
I also have never had any problems with my two monitors, I have them for years now

Just googling this now, happened to me today after installing new bridge. So irritating, makes me constantly want to go back and edit a photo. Left thumbnail right preview.

Well, I've downgraded to 9.0, which was not easy, since adobe discontinued their support for every version under 9.1 but chatting with customer service got me that far.
I didn't want 9.1 because that version has an issue with - as adobe describes it: "Bridge 9.1 doesn't auto-advance to the next image on performing delete action" and for me that was a real pain in the b.Now i've got version 9.0 installed and it looks like this is the best option for me at the moment.

This morning I tried turning on "Use software rendering" and "Generate monitor size previews", dumped the cache and synced with my colour profile settings in photoshop, then restarted. It looks good now, hope I haven't created new issues though.

Michael, you genius! Just did the same and restarted Bridge and the full screen previews are perfect! Thank you! 
It's a bit slower to zoom in to 100% and a bit clunky, but is a good workaround for now.

Aah, no, alas for me that didn't do the trick.It changed the problem. Now my jpg previews were okay, but my photoshopfiles were all off. (there where the psd and jpg file were always similar in thumbnails as in preview)So still not a workable solution unfortunately ... back to version 9.0 ...

Hi All,

Engineers are investigating this issue and are working on a fix for the same. In the meantime you can enable Software rendering by going to Preferences >Advanced > Use Software rendering and enable the same. Checking this option would give you the same behavior as 9.1

Regards,
Sahil

I followed your advice and it worked but Bridge also is slower and jerky in it's reactions.

I have this problem too.
In the screen capture here you can compare Photoshop2020 and the Bridge 2020 thumbnail (good match) with the Bridge preview (v poor match)

I have this same problem. I noticed that the problem only exists for pictures captured with my Sony camera, but not with my Canon. Do all of you shoot Sony?!

My files are Tiffs exported with the Adobe RGB colour profile. Shot with a Hasselblad, but the camera brand shouldn't make a difference as far as I understand.
