If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
Under the Theme-options > Sidebar you’re able to create an extra widget area for a page and / or category.
I need a specific sidebar on the frontpage.
So I created one for the page I had set as Home (Theme options > Frontpage settings). But that doesn’t seem to work on the homepage. (It does work when you explicitly navigate to that page, by entering the full url site.com/my-home-page, but not the default Home page site.com/)
Is this a bug or did I oversee something, or must I take another approach?

I had exactly the same problem.
I found out it was caused by the general wordpress settings (i’m using a dutch version, so I’m not sure what the translations are in the english version)
settings > read
homepage shows : a static page –> select your HOME page
I had this to ‘latest posts’ and when I switched it to ‘static page’ it worked like a charm.
