Hello there @rpuigdel please accept my apologies for this inconvenience. Could you please try updating it to the latest version trough our repository to see if that solves the issue?

Let me know if that works.

Hello @rpuigdel

some points about the flags you mentioned :

  1. this one brave://flags/#brave-dark-mode-block will report light mode only if the brave shield brave://settings/shields Block fingerprinting is set to strict by the way if you set fingerprint to strict in most cases it will load the light one

  2. this brave://flags/#enable-force-dark enable it will force dark mode

other factor affect the dark and light mode

  1. if you login to google.com and already set the setting to choose dark/light mode it will use those options

  2. if you not logged in but there some cookies/history that you visit that site with certain mode the site could choose to use the setting from that cookies

so once you go to google go the setting and check if you select certain mode there or not

to test it either open it in private mode and check it or clear the cookies/cache
