From the Adobe Photoshop Windows User to User Forums comes a report that the 9.0.1 update for Windows effect mouse clicks on menus in some cases. Menues require an extra click to regain focus from non-maximized document.
First posted by forum user false_dmitrii (see original thread) the issue has been confirmed by Photoshop engineer and co-architect Scott Byer. Scott offered an intial work around of hitting Tab-Tab but went on to explain the bug may have arisen due to a fix for the Info palette in 9.0.1.
Workaround: Hide or close the Info palette. Slight tweak; you do have to bring the Info palette to the front once after launch, then hide it or bring the Navigator back in front. If it starts in back and you don’t touch it, the extra click is still needed.
Pardon me while I gets my bug-killin’ axe…
The issue does not effect the Mac version of 9.0.1.
