Photoshop does not let you flip a path horizontally or vertically if the background layer is selected. This is a pointless restriction and should be fixed.

Which specific version of CS6? Have you installed all the updates?
And MacOS is only on 10.8.3, did you mean 10.6.8, perhaps?

OK, I can reproduce this in 13.1.2 as well.

We'll have to write that up and get it fixed.
