Are you talking about straighten tool in Quick mode? It does work for me. What happens in your case?

Same result using quick or expert mode regardless if autofill edges has been checked or not. .  Image rotates and leaves a checkerboard canvas on sides/top.  In version 13 expert mode a pop up progress bar for "fill"would appear.  Result would be that sides/top would be filled with image content.

Strange. I cannot see it at all - the tool works fine for me.

I am sure you must be doing this, but you need to check the option 'Auto Fill Edges' in the tool options bar (at the bottom) before using the tool. It will not work after the tool has done its work.

You can also try to reset the tool by using the option ' Reset Tool' or 'Reset All Tools' as shown in the picture below
