Sometimes apps won't open until I click "back"

Yesterday I randomly started having a bug: sometimes no apps will open and I have to press the back button before anything will work. At first I couldn’t figure out how to fix it at all, but the back button seems to work.

Unrelated: How do I get the back button on the RIGHT side? I can’t find this option anywhere.

Hi Randall,

sounds like the same issue as

https://forum.fairphone.com/t/not-reacting-to-touch-when-try-to-start-an-app/56510/5

and should probably be merged into that thread.

For the back button on the right you might want to give this one a try:

Ah. I didn’t find it because I only searched for “back” and “can’t open apps” (because that is how I solved it and that was the problem). Thank you for that link.

For the back button, it is very annoying that this is the first phone I have bought that doesn’t have that listed in the options (in general, the settings are very messy and I feel like I never find anything), but thank you for finding that for me.

Thank you for that link, but it isn’t a very good solution for a feature that should already have been included and I won’t install it because it has ads (I don’t like corporate propaganda).
