History Brush is unreliable. Sometimes it works, sometimes it gives ZERO response.
I've complained about this multiple times and Photoshop earns their bad support reputation by not doing anything.
Sometimes, Hx brush works fine, as it's supposed to, restoring the state I tell it to restore. Other times absolutely NOTHING happens, on ANY of the layers I try to paint on. Very frustrating!

Do you have steps to reproduce the issue? If you have steps to consistently reproduce, that would help us track down the issue.

Do you by chance have a channel or mask selected when it's not working correctly?
