PHOTOSHOP - No transform box on move tool means more clicking, since last update (quite annoying)

I've been noticing since the last update for Photoshop CC that the 'Free Transform' box when using the Move Tool does not appear despite having it checked to. This has only happened after the update so I suspect it's a bug :) not a huge deal, but a bit of an inconvenience. Thanks!

Photoshop crashes when using Move tool! :'(

Everytime I click on "v", "move tool" or use "free transform" Photoshop crashes :'(. I find this really sad since those are very useful tools. I have asked many people, but can't find the reason for the problem. I have windows 7 and photoshop cs6 if it has anything to say. So how can I fix it?

PHOTOSHOP Free Transform can temporarily make huge images as you type in parameters

When using the move tool's toolbar to change the size of an element, it is possible to hang the system and burn vast amounts of scratch disk space with a simple typo. The problem comes when I enter 3600 in this field (intending to enter px after it) and have not already deleted the default % unit.
