    I've had a wade through but havent really found an answer.

    Using whatever app, be it safari, chrome, MS Word, adobe reader etc, if I try and do a "Save As" or an "Open" from the file menu (ie one that brings up the finder dialogue box), I can only save to the folder that's displayed. If I try and scroll down to find a file that I'm trying to open, or scroll to another folder to save the file, the app freezes for a few seconds then crashes.

    Has anyone else come across this?

    This happens to me on almost all non-Apple software -

    I first noticed it when trying to upload a file in Chrome - I can scroll in the list of drives and favorite folders on the left, but when I attempt to scroll to find a folder in the main Open dialogue window the program crashes.

    Subsequently, I have found this problem, both save and opening in the follow:

    Outlook 2007
    Adobe Illustrator CS6
    Photoshop CS6

    Change the view to something other than a list. This will help.
