Photoshop blank dialog box always on top, won't go away unless PS is restarted.

(I've isolated this problem to 21.2.X and later. 21.1.3 does not have this problem.) When PS is running a process (such as a Save or a Batch), the dialog box is stuck on top of everything, even if I change the app focus. Here is an example of a batch process dialog box. After the Batch process starts running, the window goes blank but is stuck on top of everything until I restart PS.


This is a problem ONLY with 21.2.X and later. 21.1.3 does not have this problem. I had this problem BEFORE AND AFTER upgrading to OS X 10.15.6, so it's not an OS issue.
Any ideas?

On windows 10 PS 21.2.1 I can switch focus between several applications and different and same display when I switch focus back to Photoshop the batch dialog is still usable I can click OK to run the batch switch focus to other applications and see the batch running under other windows. I believe you have a problem but it not one all have.

I'm having the exact same issue... I just updated to 21.2.1 today, and it started happening immediatly. I run a batch process, then the action dialog box stays on top of everything else (blank) until I restart Photoshop. I"m also on the most current Mac OS.

Yeah. I reverted to 21.1.3 until Adobe fixes this problem.

Me too:

 

I am having an annoying problem that manifest itself when I run a batch in Photoshop. 21.2.2.
My batch dialog box will not disappear after it has finished and will stay in the foreground regardless of which other software I am using? and this morning the progress bar has decided to do the same.
I have reinstalled photoshop... no change
I have rebooted... no change...
any ideas???

I'm having this issue too, thanks for posting.  as a heavy heavy batch user, this is irritating although it does go away when i quit and restart.  Running 21.2.2. on a mac.  Thanks!
