Bridge thumbnail quality is behaving in a way that cannot be normal.
Windows 11 Pro 22H2
Explanation on what is wrong:
No matter what I do, Bridge seems to generate lower quality thumbnails when it processes them. When bridge has a chance to cache a thumbnail, it will always cache an extremely low quality grainy thumbnail that is nearly unreadable. When I prevent it from caching them, they can look ok for a little bit, but inevitably (when I click on them or when it decides to generate thumnbails for a folder), it will cache and extremely bad looking thumbnail.
I am attaching 2 example files, one of them is the thumbnail before it processes it, and the worse looking grainy one is after the file has been clicked on. This just cannot be how bridge is intended to process thumbnails, they look incredibly bad.
Note: This is also happening in the preview window if it is set to certain settings and reduced to a lower viewport size.
How I can reproduce it:
I use the zoom hotkey on the folder window a few times and it will reload all of the thumbnails into a much more viewable thumbnail, after I click on one it reduces the quality significantly and I need to zoom again to reproduce.
