I updated Photoshop CC 2015 to version 2015.1.2 (March 16, 2016), with Adobe Camera Raw 9.5.   I took some pictures with my Sony A6000 with firmware version 3.10.  To my surprise, when browsing the resulting images, the thumbnail for the raw files are not being rendered in the open dialog file selector.  The jpeg thumbnails are displayed properly.  This version of Photoshop CC 2015 renders has a problem with raw files from the A6000 in general (when browsing using the open dialog file selector).  This was not a problem with the earlier version of Camera Raw and CC 2015.

The OS open dialog only shows previews rendered by the OS or third party codecs.  That does not involve any  Adobe code.

What problem are you having after opening the file in ACR?

Thank you for replying so quickly.  This is my fault.  I upgraded my OS to Windows 10 and forgot to reinstall the Sony raw file driver.  Duh!   Aside from that, the new update looks great!
