Navbar: Back button is active but the icon is hidden

Hello Guys,

I am currently in the process of moving my app over from an older version of ionic 2 to the current version as of today.

Within my navbar, the back button that is default is hidden. However it is still active, when i press the area where it should be, it pops the current page back to the previous one.

Has anyone else run into this issue or could i have missed something while moving my file over?

Here is my header tag:


I cleared the information that was in my tags in order to debug the issue but it is still present.

so i actually need help…
