Brave rolls back to light theme after exit

Description of the issue:
I use dark “brave colors” in appearance tab in settings. After recent major update brave resets some elements’ color back to light colors. Most noticeable: recent sites icons’ background, drop menu, settings screen. But the option stays put on “dark”. I have to choose “light” then “dark” again to set it right. The problem repeats after each new launch consistently.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Close browser
  2. Open browser

Expected result:
Colors revert to light themed.

Brave Version( check About Brave):

Version 1.52.117 Chromium: 114.0.5735.90 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:
OS: Linux Mint 21.1, kernel 5.15.0-73-generic
I haven’t changed any options after update, except trying new vertical tabs. Reverting back to horizontal tabs doesn’t negate the trouble.

same here. I had to rollback to latest 1.51.x since this was very annoying.
