I have Photoshop CS6 and I used to have CS5, before downloading the new Photoshop, I realized a problem whenever I use type tool.. the Photoshop becomes very slow and takes long time to write anything! Is it a common problem.. when I downloaded CS6 I thought the problem will end but I still have the problem.

It could be a lot of fonts, or corrupt fonts causing problems.
Try turning off the font preview (size: none) and see what happens.

Corrupt Fonts and bad font caches can cause problems as well.
