Icons disappearing on Homescreen

Lately, but not all the time, my icons disappear from my Homescreen.  I use an Ultra that is approximately 5+ years old.  Only a reboot will fix the problem. Anyone have an idea why this is happening and if there is a permanent fix?

Re: Icons disappearing on Homescreen

On a couple of occasions recently after I exit an App, all of my App icons are gone from the Home screen,  It has only happened twice and I cannot reproduce the problem nor have I taken a screenshot or pic of the problem.  The only way to resolve the problem is to reboot the Roku.
