Default GS4 keeps returning to the home screen/apps crashing

Hey all, when im using my GS4 it likes to randomly return to the home screen when I press the menu button or the back button (when it should just take me back to the previous page). It does this rather frequently and it seems to do it in all apps. Can someone help?

With many programs the back button should take you to the home screen, if that's where you were last. I've not seen that behavior with the menu button that I recall.

I doubt that the apps are crashing. Go to Settings/Application Manager/Running to see if they are still running (although some apps will close, so that's not a conclusive test).

yeah the apps aren't crashing. The main issue here is that when in an app and I hit the menu button it will sometimes close the app
