This is ridiculous. I'm having the same problem and it's seriously cutting into my productivity. I expect better from Adobe. Given the amount of folks that are commenting on this and that this is apparently been going on for quite some time - FIX THE PROBLEM! I don't pay this type of money for products that function this poorly.
