Home tab does not stay selected

If I select a home page that uses XenForos header why then does Home not stay selected when it is clicked ? and why doesn't setting a home page in ACP take care of it ?

I have seen this happen on many XF sites and has been bugging me for ages, If I land on somebody Home page it appears (if judging by the highlighted tab) that I am already in the forum, But I have to click the already highlighted tab so I can navigate to where the navigation is telling me I already am.

I must be missing something

Where are you setting the Home tab page to?

If it is any page within the forum then the relevant tab will be highlighted.

For example, I use a Page for my "home" page and as such the Forum tab is highlighted when clicking on Home.

Would a page or create thread be considered not part of the forum ?
I have tried using a page but I get the same result as I described above which can be seen on your site also.
Bit confused really

Pages are part of the forum route, just as categories, forums, and threads are.

There are some add-ons and guides which explain how to create a new "home" tab which remains highlighted.
