    This is an extremely annoying issue, and the devs are refusing to anything about it, (well, other than giving us bad advice and poor workarounds). This is a problem for a lot of people and needs to be addressed. I do not want to set Navigation to none because it'll break my keyboard inputs.

    I don't know who's the man that set this to Dupplicate when the issue in the other thread is not at all the same, you can see if you read comments that this happens on Desktop as well. I've sent several bug reports and every where I look, all I see is "Hey, set navigation to "none"".

    First of all, that doesn't work with this issue, second of all, setting navigation to none as a bad side effect on keyboards selection, which is standard on Windows softwares in case your damn mouse breaks and you can't exit the game.

    I'm not paying a cent for Unity Pro until the devs know how to make a button, this is insulting.

    I can also verify that this issue isn't limited to Android or mobile, I'm seeing it on windows desktop as well.

    Can verify that setting Navigation to None doesn't fix the issue in 5.3.3, 5.3.4, or 5.3.5

    Have the same problem. Doesn't work on mobile. Something with the mobile "cursor".

    Same Issue, on PC setting navigation to none fixes it. When I build the game and deploy it on my Android device. It acts like I still have navigation on. The buttons still stay high lighted even when I've taken my finger off. The only thing I can think of, is the virtual mouse position gets set to the last location the player touched. It remains there so on mobile it never de-highlights. However if I touch somewhere else on the screen. My button will be deselected.

    I have the same issue. Posted about it here:
    It is really annoying for the users of my game. (All buttons are set to navigation: none)

    Have you tried setting the Navigation value in the Button component to none?
