Broken keyboard shortcut. Toggle between pixels and layer mask used to be (on Mac): Cmd +backslash, then Cmd+tilde. Cmd+tilde no longer works in CS5.1.

1. Edit>Keyboard Shortcuts...
2. Check "Use Legacy Shortcuts"
3. Restart Photoshop and the old shortcuts will work as they did in previous versions of Photoshop

Note: that cmd + ~ will no longer work to cycle through open documents.
