[BUG] Light splash screen on Edge for Android when in dark mode

Occasional Contributor

As the title says, the splash screen on the app for android shows the light theme for a second when starting the app in dark mode. I want to be able to switch completely to edge on both mobile and PC, but with this bug I don't feel like i can. (Since it's kind of blinding at night!).
I just thought I'd get this bug out here since I could not find any mentions about it elsewhere.

Crossing fingers for a fix soon!

@SlowNicoFish Thanks for letting us know! We'll bring this to our devs' attention ASAP, but first, can you please confirm with version/channel of Edge you're using? (Or is it just the new Stable?)

Thanks for the answer!
I use the Beta for android: v
Android 10 Pixel 3XL

I'm also seeing this problem, I'm using a Pixel 3 on Android 10, Android is set to "Dark theme". This is indeed an issue with Edge for Android

@Bdsrev and @SlowNicoFish To confirm: are you still seeing this?

Hi, I'm actually reported this issue before, however, there's another issue didn't mention in this post.

When I trying to swipe the top bar to switch between tabs, the search bar area just showing white color when I'm doing it. Please refer to the post below.

@chungweileong Thanks for the callout, I replied :)

@Deleted I have found a new bug, but this time on a tablet.
The new update works good and the problem I reported in this discussion is resolved!

@SlowNicoFish So glad to hear that it's working! We love to hear that. Thanks for the heads-up about the other thread, it was on my list of things to check in with the team about. :)
