On further examination, this appears to happen under specific circumstances. If I open any of my older sessions, Follow Range works. If I create a new session and import files, Follow Range does not work.

Also, if I create a new session and record a track, Follow Range does not work. It appears to work only if I open one of my older sessions.

And this seems to be the case on one of my computers but not on another.

More stuff:

FR didn't work when I tried to open a recently-created existing file. A ~/.config/jack dir was created by something unknown to me. rm'ing that dir and the ardour6 config dir eliminated the issue. Opening that session again re-created the issue. Performing above fix and importing the audio from the problematic session seems to not bring the FR not working issue with it.

So, very specific circumstances and I'm sadly not IT-savvy enough to do more than report what I observed.

Interesting. I don't know if this is how it's supposed to work, but now when the FR button is lit, the playhead scrolls off the screen and disappears. When the FR button is unlit, the view tracks the playhead.
