Dark Brave Search in Brave Browser

Description of the issue:

… how can i set the background of the startpage [https://search.brave.com/] in my Brave Browser to be dark, my theme in Brave Browser is set to dark and also the brave search settings, but everytime i start the browser new it is white ???

Brave Version (check About Brave):

Version 1.26.74 Chromium: 91.0.4472.124 (Offizieller Build) (64-Bit)

Operating System:

Linux Manjaro (Arch based)

This may be happening if you are clearing your browsing data on exit, as the theme is set via cookie in the browser I believe. Can you check Settings --> History --> Clear browsing data --> [On exit] and check to see if you have set any data here to be deleted on exit?

I too have this issue due to automatic clearing of browsing data on exit. I’d like to set the Brave Search page as my home page, but the eyes can barely handle the defaulted bright page. Without setting a history/cookie exception, will there be a page available for Brave search that will have the dark theme by default?

… yes, this was what i have activated, when i uncheck to delete cookies on exit, the background of the brave search is dark forever ;-}

… but in my opinion it would be better to set something like an exception for only some pages and not to generally deactivate this option >>> is there an addon who could handle such an behaviour ???
