Answer to: Home button doesn't go homeI noticed that when I was on default web browser and 'Google now' or 'google search' came up, and I hit the running apps key to the left of the home button, the Google now slot said Firefox search within the google seach tab. So I uninstalled Firefox. So far no problem. Update: Pertaining to my last post: deleting firefox only prevented Google now from popping up. The problem with the home button is still there. Still needs to be tapped multiple times, and often I need to use the phones back button to return to the home screen.but, google now-search no longer cones up. That's a plus. Update: Did a hard restart: removed the battery for 5 minutes and the problem with the home button not working is gone . Steps I took 1.uninstalled Firefox, Google now stopped showing up, but problem with home button still seemed to be there. 2. did hard reset (pulled battery out for 5 minutes) and the problem with home button seems gone for now.
