Home button acting as back button

So I've had this issue maybe twice before where the home button on my Galaxy S4 stops working as a home button and when you press it it works as a back button. So instead of leading me to my home screen it'll take me a page back. It seems to randomly fix itself after a couple of hours but this time around it's been two days and it's still not working. Does anyone know whats going on and how to fix it?

Have you ever had a repair done to this device?


Not as far as I know. The phone was a hand-me-down from a family friend and is jail broken, but I've also had this phone for over a year before this started happening

Check in Settings > My Device > Accessibility > Assistant Menu if any options have been set which alter the functions of the Home and Back buttons from their default settings.
