Default [Q] Why does tapping the Share button take me to the Bluetooth menu?

In any app with a Share button, for example, YouTube, when I press the button to, maybe, share the link in a text message, I instead get taken to the bluetooth menu. If the bluetooth is off when I press the button, I get a pop-up to turn bluetooth on first. In Titanium Backup, I froze the Bluetooth Share app, and the Share button worked fine, but completely disabled bluetooth functionality, so I unfroze it. What's going on?

Are you hitting the button that looks like an open triangle pointing to the left? That should bring up a popup menu with your sharing options.

If that doesn't work, are there any other apps/services that you've frozen? Try unfreezing them and see if that brings the menu back.

Edit: just noticed you said it worked fine when you froze Bluetooth share app. Try going into the properties for that app and clear the details for it.

Just cleared the data and cache. Same issue. It's weird, I've never heard of this problem before and couldn't find anything through Google.

Go to Settings, then apps. In the 3 dots button, select to redefine preferences or something like that.
