Dark mode theme with dark web content

Troubleshooting technical issues is much easier when both the user and support agent practice clear communication. For this reason, we have provided the template below for you to fill out with information about your issue. Please provide as much detail as possible so we can most efficiently resolve your problem.

Description of the issue:
Everything was fine until a couple of weeks ago, but now I am unable to get website content change according to system theme.
If I turn on the flag “#enable-force-dark” and select “Enabled”, all web content does turn dark. But when the app theme (and system theme) turns Light, the web content doesn’t turn white/light but still stays dark.
What combination of settings do I need to enable to make the following happen?

  1. Dark app mode + dark web content during the night (as per the system theme)
  2. Light app mode + light web content during the day (as per the system theme)

How can this issue be reproduced?

I don’t know

Expected result:

Brave Version (check About Brave):
Brave 1.57.53, Chromium 116.0.5845.114

Mobile Device details
OnePlus 7 Pro running Pixel Experience ROM + Magisk v26.1

Wow, didn’t expect this “community” to be so dead. Am I the only one who has an issue with the recently started dark mode problem?
Anyway, I found out the reason. It’s because the flag #darken-websites-checkbox-in-themes-setting has been removed. Temporary solution is to “Unexpire M115 flags” in brave://flags and renable the above flag.
