Icecoldart, you're not alone. I have Photoshop CS6 on my iMac 24-inch, Early 2009 running Mavericks (OSX 10.9). It seems that it happens after a few 10-20 mins and freezes up the whole computer for 10+ second. It's gotta have something to do with the memory for sure. Hopefully Adobe will send out a update soon.

Did you try changing your RAM settings in photoshop itself?
when in photoshop: go to Photoshop>preferences>performance, and boost it up to what you can use.
I would suggest BOTH of you to upgrade your RAM.
icecoldart, your computer supports up to 16gb of RAM. http://eshop.macsales.com/shop/memory/Apple_MacBook_MacBook_Pro/Upgrade/DDR3_160 0MHz_SDRAM

Seems pretty clear to me, really. Not seeing any core complaints of any stature from CC members. I'm willing to bet that Adobe will wait a good while to fix anyhting on their end; it's a good time to get everyone to say, "Screw It" and subscribe.
I've always felt the way they deployed CC (exclusively) was as anti-customer as anything in tech history. I really hope I'm wrong, but I suspect the spin machine will kick in soon and use their coveted subscription plan as a first-strike solution.
Adobe started a trend that will change the whole playing field for those who are tring to just get in the game.

Adobe put out something that said there weren't any major known issues on CS3 and later versions. So I don't think it's that (in this particular case at least). I'm not above thinking Adobe will pull out every trick to get people on the subscription train, but I don't thin that's the case here

That's the spot. Photoshop>Preferences>Performance
Uncheck "Use Graphics Processor"
Reopen it and go back to the Preferences>Performance
Recheck "Use Graphics Processor" and it should work just fine.

Photoshop is not freezing on me but with both photoshop and filezilla, they are oening up without the top window bar (no close, minimize and maximise) So I have no way to move the window.
Also switches from main to secondary screen back and forth when swapping between apps.

My photoshop elements 4.0 won't work with Mavericks. I googled it and it suggested to dl Java. I did and it's not helping!! I don't know what to do now. I can't even open it to change the preference. What should I do?

I thought I was working on a smooth and the fastest Imac 27 inch machine. And an upgrade to Mavericks would make it perform even better. NOT!
It slowed down my Mac
But even worse is opening Photoshop CC, it takes over ten minutes and while it's open no other programs are working smoothly anymore.
And the worst, I have to present 12 images by tommorrow for a magazine, bye bye income. Thank you Apple
All was fine but after the upgrade all is a disaster
Did all the updates, did a java update, did install new drivers for the Wacom, unchecked the graphic accelerator in PS,...nothing worked.
Did anybody else find the solution with a reinstall of Mavericks?
