    When using the "back" button on my phone, Facebook has started interrupting the process with a pop-up menu asking what app it should use to "Open with." And they seem random: emergency call, settings, Google assistant, etc.

    Is this only when you're in the Facebook app, or does it happen within other apps as well?

    Only in the Facebook app, as far as I have seen.

    I can't find a way to clear data or clear cache except to optimize/clean it through settings. Force stop did nothing.

    Any time you have a problem with a Facebook app, it's almost always Facebook's fault. (They promote "developers" whose resumes I'd throw in the garbage at first glance. Mark Zuckerberg is [or was?] a good developer, but the people they hire? Not so much. [But then, I've only been doing this for 46 years, so what do I know?])

    I'd uninstall Facebook, restart, then install it again. (Unless there's an update? Run Play, look for Facebook, and see if there's an Update button. If there is, try that.)

    Uninstall and reinstall worked for me. Thanks!

    Edit: the problem has returned after several hours.

    Yeah. Even my kludgy TI-84+ calculator programs written when I was 16 are much more stable than the facebook app.
