this resolved bug and you do not yet see a matching new report.
If you start an application from Visual Studio and you try to resume the application from the launcher or the recent app list of your device, the app will not be resumed but will be restarted instead.
This makes it hard to debug the resuming scenario as the activities are not resumed but are created again.
Previously the app was resuming correctly when started from Visual Studio.
Occurs with and without debugging, in debug and release builds.
Note that static variables keep their values between the two starts, resulting in problems if activities are not designed to be created multiple times.
=== Reproduction ===
Create an Android project
Override OnCreate and OnResume
Place breakpoints in both
Start debugging (F5)
Note that OnCreate was called
Press the home button of the device and return to the application using the menu of your device
Note that OnCreate was called again instead of OnResume
