In Yosemite (present in 10.10.0 and 10.10.1) Finder regularly and repeatedly (not just randomly) freezes when in column view.
I always use column view by default, so it happens often. It seems to happen when you click on certain file types-- I suspect the "preview" in the right-hand-most pane is causing the problem.
- It seems to be related to certain file types (but I haven't figured out which ones yet)
- If a specific file type causes a freeze, it always does
- If a specific file type doesn't cause a freeze, it never does
For example, if I click on a "zip" file, it successfully generates a "preview" in the right-hand-most pane. Always works. PDF and TXT also work fine.
However, if I click on a ".epub" or ".mobi" file, it always beachballs or freezes Finder. There are other file extensions that also cause freezing, most "non-common" ones seem to do it.
Anyone else experiencing this? Workarounds or fixes?
