I'm on the Android 9 July Patch with a G950U1, and out of nowhere my recents and home buttons in the navbar will just disappear, and I won't be able to pull down from the top of the screen from the status bar. There is only a back button on my navbar, like how it is in setup, and it will just randomly do this and sometimes randomly fix itself. Is there a way to rid of it completely?

I will try this tomorrow, I have to use third party apps for tonight as it is my primary phone. I'll see if it randomly does it in safe mode.

@mustang7757, So I tried it in safe mode for a bit, and it would still do it, but I'm pretty sure I solved my own problem, I'll report back here if it does it again but I disabled and force stopped Android Setup, and since then it hasn't done it.

Ok good, try the same for Samsung launcher also if it happens again.
