App switcher stops working randomly after A12 update


sice the Android 12 update my FP4 decided to “deactivate” the app swichter fromm time to time. It happens about every 12-48 hours and I can’t tell if it is after using a certain app or something.
So far only restarting helps to solve the problem.
I’m using NovaLauncher - could this be an issue with the update?

Does this occur for anyone else?



Hi Simon,

I can’t help you with NovaLauncher but maybe another launcher could help. I am using the free version of ‘Smart Launcher’ in combination with ‘Zone Launcher’.

This setup works very well for me.

Best wishes,

Yes, this is occurring to me.

This problem is extensively discussed in the following topic:

The problem appears to be related to the choice of launcher and is seen with other ROMs.
