and Settings Persistence

Any custom settings (“4Chan settings”, not any Brave Browser settings) for and will occasionally revert to defaults, seemingly every few days. These settings include filters, themes, and keyboard shortcuts for example.

I believe the issue is present with default settings as well as when Brave has been set to Allow Fingerprinting and all Cookies for the sites. I have also added the domains under “Sites that can always use cookies”.

This issue does not occur when using Firefox. It’s strange to me that it seems to occur only after several days, and not when a new session is started.

This is my first post, please excuse any errors I may have made.

Hello there @asdfiwefjo please accept my apologies for this issue, please provide me with the Brave version you are using and OS information in order to further investigate.

Be waiting for your response.

Hello Kevin,

I’m using Brave Version 1.47.186 Chromium: 109.0.5414.119 (Official Build) (64-bit) with auto-updates enabled on both Windows 10 64-bit and Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS. Thank you for your time.

Does this behavior happen on both OS? Please try disabling your extensions to see if the settings do not reset overtime, also try saving your custom settings on another chromium browser such as Chrome to see if this happens there.

Hello Kevin,

Yes, this issue occurs when using either OS with no extensions. This issue does not occur when using Mozilla Firefox.

If it happens on other Chromium based browsers, it could be related to chromium itself rather than with Brave, as Firefox used Gecko as its engine.

I’ve shared this with our team and I’m waiting for further information on the matter. Once our team has answers, I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Hello Kevin,

Much appreciated, thank you.
