Numerous difficulties with the new Bridge version (13.01)

I have Bridge v 13.01 installed on an iMac18.3 (27-inch, 2017) 3.5 GHz Intel Core i5, with 32 GB DDRAM, running macOS Ventura 13.0.1 and, using it is an almost impossible task.

I've been using Bridge for many years, to catalog my photos, and it's always been somewhat slow, specially, loading all the photos in a folder or a collection. But in this version, the slowness extends to pretty much everything.

Even worse is that, now, is total impossibility to use the program to edit the metadata (what I use it exclusively for!). I just select 2 photos and try to fill in the keyword, the subject, or any other field and, as soon as I write the first letters, the field is empty again... although, by the message that appears when I try to select another photo, it seems to be assuming what I write, because it asks me if I want to discard the changes made. But I cannot see what it assume I've written!
Identical situation occurs when I try to insert GPS coordinates or any other field.


And after, somehow, I managed to introduce, for example, the author of the photo, if I select 2 photos, the software takes more than a minute to change the text of the field, from "multiple values" to the correct text.
