Developer Tools - devices choice no longer being saved


When using Developer tools, and using ‘Toggle Device toolbar’, any changes made to the devices list are not saved.

This feature was working until about middle of January.

Now, when browser is closed, the ‘device list’ reverts back to default selection.
There seems to be no way to save my device selection (or any ‘custom devices’) I have created.

Same issue here.
Seems like, every time you open a new Tab or restart the Browser, the file %homepath%\AppData\Local\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\User Data\Default\Preferences will be overwritten with a default version.

tiggalot is correct. What’s the point of ‘User Preferences’ that get overwritten with default data? Is there a way to bypass this behaviour?

I am a web developer and I need a non-mobile device in the list of emulated devices, but now I have to add a new custom device every time I close the dev tools, because my created devices are lost every time.

Bumping – this is not the only devtools setting being lost.

Same issue here. Doesn’t seem to be happening on latest Chrome version.
