Honor Magic UI 6.0 update gone wrong

So, updated my Honor 50 to it's newest ui update called Magic UI 6.0. It now causes the phone to react weirdly when trying to scroll through apps to decide which to close.

On the Honor phones, you change the system navigation from gestures-based to 3 key navigation where it'll put 3 symbols at the bottom of the screen.

Therr is a down arrow symbol for going back, a circle symbol for minimising apps and open windows, and a square symbol for bringing all apps into focus so you can scroll through them to either close all at once or close 1 at a time.

That square symbol feature doesn't work anymore since doing the UI 6.0 update. When you tap the square symbol it still brings all open apps into focus but if you try scroll through all open apps by swiping to the right it simply snaps the most recent open app back into view. It's mad sensitive.

I cannot swipe through the open apps, and if i try close one by swiping up to close it, the app simply snaps back into view.

So, this update has broken this feature. The only thing I can do now, is tap the square symbol and hit the trash can icon it shows which then closes all open apps, which is not what I want.

Any idea how to fix this? And, anyone else having a similar problem with Magic UI 6.0 ?

Does it work if instead you use Gestures?

I fixed the problem. I use Nova Launcher Prime on my phone. It's the paid for version. When the update occured, something must have gone screwy with Nova Launcher. So, I reset default launcher back to the Honor system and I noted that the square button now behaves and does what it was supposed to, I could swipe through the apps to close as I wanted to.

I then re-enabled Nova Launcher as default launcher and the problem sorted itself put. So, it looks like something went wrong with Nova Launcher. But, it's fixed now.
