Description amit yadav 2020-04-16 02:28:42 UTC
This bug was initially created as a copy of Bug #1613835

I am copying this bug because: 

The issue is affecting multiple releases of RHEL. Originally the issue was reported for RHEL7. But, I am able to reproduce the issue with RHEL8 and Fedora as well.

Description of problem:
While setting Window List under Extensions tab in tweak-tools, the setting will reset upon opening the window. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open gnome-tweak-tool.
2. Go to Extensions tab.
3. Open Window List setting (gear button).
4. Set Always group windows.
5. Close Window List window.
6. Open Window List setting (gear button) again.

Actual results:
Setting is back to Never group windows.

Expected results:
My setting gets saved/will not get reset upon opening the window.

Thanks for a bug report. gnome-tweaks just calls gnome-shell-extension-prefs for that giver extension, thus the preferences are handled by the respective extensions, as written in bug #1613835 comment #5. I'm moving this to gnome-shell-extensions. See the original bug for the patch and a reference to an upstream fix.

By the way, it's only a visual thing, the current setting doesn't change until the user clicks on any of the values.

On gnome-shell-extensions-3.32.1-11.el8, the setting stays no matter how many times you open the settings GUI.
