Similar issue here, Has to do something with the new update, I know they've been working on dark mode override(per app dark mode preference). But still, have to wait for official statement.


Unless Dark Mode it's not officially supported in EOS, a workaround in this thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/elementaryos/comments/gxhsi9/slowly_losing_dark_theme_with_each_update/
