I'm using photoshop CS4, legal version on my MAC computer version OS X 10.9.2, and I have a weird problem with all the window pannel, had never see that before.

When i'm creating a new doc., first I can't see the default informations (for the name, size or resolution) and i can't see the informations when i trying to fill the text space.

Next, when i'm openning a document, all the title pannel (ex.: LAYERS) disappear. Finally, when i moving some window from the pannel, they disappear and i can't re-open them from the "windows" tool bar. And finally, photoshop crash out and give a error message.

I tried to reset the photoshop setting but doesn't work. I send you somes pics... All others CS program works good.

Thank. Isabelle

The blank text fields might be related to the OS dictation feature.
The blank titles could be an OS API bug, or could be a required OS font missing.

Do make sure you have all the CS4 updates (you should be on 11.0.2).

The error message means that Photoshop received a serious, and unknown, error from the OS and could not continue running.

Unfortunately, Photoshop CS4 is old and wasn't even tested against MacOS 10.9 (seeing as it was last updated 3 years before 10.9 was announced).
