Upon closer look, the setting will get saved the moment I close the Window List. As I am able to see multiple instances of terminal grouping and ungrouping. But only after closing the Window List. This setting will reset once the Window List is opened again.

Also should mention the AlternateTab is working well, I would expect the same from Window List as they seem like exact copies.

Comment 3 Carlos Soriano 2018-09-04 11:21:16 UTC
I tried with dconf, and seems the keys cannot be found somehow, so it's seems an issue with gnome-shell-extensions or so.

Comment 4 Carlos Soriano 2018-09-04 11:49:35 UTC
I can reproduce with gnome-shell-extension-tool, so seems the issue is there. the setting is changed in dconf fine.

I doubt it - the only settings gnome-shell-extension-prefs knows about are the relevant settings in org.gnome.shell (enabled-extensions and disable-user-extensions).

The settings from individual extension settings are handled by the preference widget that is supplied by the extension, so that's more likely the source.

Comment 7 Milan Crha 2020-04-17 07:23:08 UTC
Florian is right, the problem is in gnome-shell-extensions, thus I move this there. This [1] is a link to an upstream fix.

The upstream fix does not apply to RHEL sources, this is the version, which does.

Unable to reproduce with gnome-shell-extensions-3.28.1-13.el7.
