Bridge CC: Single click on a thumb immediately opens ACR, preventing me from opening multiple files on MacOS 10.9

Selecting a thumb in Bridge with a single click immediately opens the file in ACR. As a result, I can select no more than one file at a time. I cannot select a range of files because ACR pops open as soon a I select a single file with a single click. The problem is not with my mouse configuration; it is NOT configured to deliver a double click.

What happens if you enable the preference in Bridge / Preferences / General to make a double-click open a file in ACR?

Also, you can select a single image with a right-click as well. What happens if you use right-click to select your first image, and Shift-single-click to select the last image in a sequence, do all open in ACR or just the last one you shift-clicked on?

Are you using one of the disabled or handicapped modes, accidentally, that reduces the number of clicks to select things?

Have you rebooted?

Have you reset your Bridge or Photoshop preferences?

You don't say what version of Bridge and what OS you're using, in case that matters, in case that matters to anyone who might recognize the symptoms.

Thank you, Steve, for your reply and I apologize for the incomplete info. I'm using Mavericks on a Mac with Bridge/PS CC.

I'm using a very unsatisfactory work-around. Right click on first image, then shift/right click and hold for flyout menu on last image in group, then choose open in ACR.

This problem is new with Mavericks; I've been using Bridge/PS CC for several months with Snow Leopard without this kind of problem.

All software is up to date. Preferences are reset, no accessibility settings are active.

Thanks again.

I wonder if everyone with Mavericks is having this issue or it is more a particular combination of hardware and software.

Do you have any other devices plugged in, particularly ones that allow keyboard or mouse input, like a tablet, either external or built-in to the keyboard?

Or some sort of keyboard macro or scripting addon software--something that has inserted itself in the driver chain and isn't playing nice, and causing some sort of conflict.

Are you on Mavericks 10.9.2, that fixed the man-in-the-middle security vulnerability, or on a previous 10.9.x release?
