This is super, super annoying. If I open the News app on my phone, start reading an article and then, say, reply to a message; every time I restore the article the News app just goes back to the home screen.

I'd expect this if my phone was running out of memory but it's not.

Is there anything I can do to prevent this? Seems like a bug.
