Description of problem:
When the user opens a page with a Form / YAML switch, for example the Install Helm chart, Edit Deployment or Edit BuildConfig pages, the pages makes always a patch call to update the user preferences.
Prerequisites (if any, like setup, operators/versions):
Steps to Reproduce
Switch to developer perspective > Add > Helm chart
Select a helm chart (for example Dotnet) and press Install Helm Chart
Open the browser network inspector and filter for "user-settings"
Refresh the page
You can always the a PATCH call which stores the latest selected editor type (form or yaml)
No unnecessary network calls
