I'm sorry to hear that.

 

This doesn't happen on my phone so not sure what could be the cause of this. Does it also happen in safe mode?

This sounds really strange

 

So when u touch on a small bar, it doesn't react ?

 

My small apps works very well, as intended by Sony

I just had a huge find. My greenify also requires accessibility's service permission(idk if its really called a "permission") so, when the service is "on", this bug appears and will not go away unless i turn the "service" for greenify off!!! (Omg so many 3rd party apps issues)

As another commentor posted, going into safe mode, opening one of the small apps up, closed it, and rebooted the device seems to have solved the issue. What a peculiar glitch.
