Back button randomly does not render appropriately on occasion


Very hard to debug because this does not always happen.

Here’s the corresponding HTML

<ion-nav-buttons side="left">
  <button class="button back-button buttons button-icon icon ion-ios-arrow-back header-item" ng-click="$ionicGoBack()">Back</button>

I do have the following too in my controller :


Which needs to be there otherwise there will be 2 back buttons


I reloaded my browser and now I see


issue continues to persist. Very random behavior


it seems to be a problem with your browser/internet connection?

This is usually if the icon font is not loaded correctly.
open your DevTools and check out network or JS Console if there are any errors, that a file could not be found (except cordova.js… this is not there on non mobile devices)


Hi thank you for your response. That may be it as I haven’t seen it come up in some time.

I have lots of JS errors in console even when the app is working well unfortunately
