It's a very annoying bug. I always get this when I try to open soemting in tapatalk or open office. It simply won't store the 'open with' settings.

What you can try is to temporarily install another launcher (Apex and Nova are free), press home, select that one as always, uninstall it again, press home and select the one you want. Might work.

I wasn't suggesting you actually keep the other launcher.

No, it's because of a few system files in KitKat not being writable. It has nothing to do with the specific apps. (The WiFi password file also has this issue for som.e
