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):
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.
Setting is back to Never group windows.
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.
