3 years ago I moved to CC 2017 and Bridge. No problems with either during over 1000+ hours of use. Last July (2019) I built a new workstation. Installed the latest vesion of Photoshop (currently 20.0.6) and Bridge (currently 22.214.171.1248). My OS is Win 10 1809 (OS build 17763.805).
During the last 3 months I have easily accumulated several hundred hours of usage. To date, Photoshop has not crashed once. Until 2 days ago the same with Bridge.
Now Bridge is unstable. It freezes or crashes. When I view images in Filmstrip they disappear within 1 minute or less. The images in Content remain (assuming that the program did not freeze or crash).
If I switch to Essentials and select an image it appears in Preview. Again for only about a minute.
These problems exist even when no other programs including Photoshop are open.
This morning I uninstalled Bridge. Shut down the computer, rebooted, and reinstalled Bridge. Same problems.
Prior to this issue which began 2 days ago no new programs or updates were installed to my computer.
I'm having the same problem. I can briefly view an image, but then Bridge crashes. I've done everything you've done, delete and reinstall, cold boot, etc. Photoshop, Lightroom, Illustrator, and InDesign work. I can use RAW as a filter, but can't open, sort, delete, or do anything in Bridge. I tried Adobe Chat, which wasted half an hour.
