When I flashed stock 4.4.3 update (kernel, radio and firmware) I thought maybe I've installed a bad ROM.
Every time I backed out of certain applications, the last application in the recent apps list (the one before the one I just backed out from) opened for a second and closed it self.

For example, I played Boom beach, sent it to background using HOME.
Then, I used App Stats, played around in some screens and then backed out of it -> Boom beach opened for a second and closed itself.

Then I installed the 4.4.4 update, and this still occurs...
This doesn't happen with every application... I can back out of most apps without any issue.

This never happened on 4.4.2 and lower.

It may be an app issue and not the system so I'd love a feedback from you guys before I contact the apps developers.

Am I the only one who experience this issue?

Backup your data and try factory reset.

No you're not alone, I've also gotten this behaviour after a clean install of 4.4.3

Any apps in particular or every app you back out of?

Wiped my data couple of times and reflashed different Roms. Most of them had this issue.
You suggest a factory reset through settings will do the trick?

Very weird... I wonder how this is not well known by now. Did you update your firmware with the OTA or a flashable zip? Maybe it's ROM related?

I factory resetted in TWRP then Fastboot erased leaving no trace behind, and then fastboot flashed 4.4.3. It's stock.

It's probably not well known because people may be using their device differently, pressing Home to exit an app instead of using Back maybe... or they don't think much of it to report it, I know I didn't, but it does get annoying after a while.

Well, now that I know I'm not alone, I'll report it later today.
Maybe Google is trying to kill the back button

Thanks for the info!
