    Adobe should really do something about this, and my fix confirms that it's a glitch that's been going on for quite a while. Here's the fix that worked for me.

    Short answer if you just want the fix:

    Edit>Preferences>Devices: Change Devices selection to "None."

    Longer answer (in case Adobe can use this to finally fix the issue):

    I had a feeling it might have something to do with enumerating disks or other devices before the menu opens. Eventually, I went to Edit>Preferences>Devices to see what settings were available and there wasn't much. I don't use a capture device so I set Devices to "None." To my great joy, that fixed the issue. Here's the weird thing though. I went to document my solution and noticed that the change didn't "take." The Devices setting was back to [Path]HDV Device Control. But the File menu issue was still resolved. The resolution remained persistent after a restart of Premiere and seems permanent, at least for now.

    Just a guess, but maybe you aren't getting a response because:

    1. The rest of us put date stamps in the sequence name because it is more visible, takes up less metadata column space, is always visible everywhere, and sorts by default.

    2. This thread is part of the forum with a form for making feature requests. Here's the root: https://www.adobe.com/products/wishform.html. The process is to submit a request and wait. Unless you're an EP with a major production house, telling Adobe they "suck" or threatening to cancel you subscription is not going to move your request up in the queue.

    3. I've worked in software development and I can tell you that there are thousands of feature requests in the list all the time (currently 9021) and over 9 million Premiere users. 54 people demanding that their pet feature be implemented doesn't mean much, if anything. You have to remember that you represent .000006 of the installed base.

    4. As an editor, don't you just hate it when a director or client asks you to make a change and tells you it won't take very long? How is that different than a customer demanding that Adobe implements a feature and says "it should be very easy"?

    I agree with Bruce regarding contrast. One example is when I choose anything other than "Fit" for the zoom level in the Program panel, then go to adjust the position of the image, the scroll bars are barely visible. See attachment.
