The default prefs are now different between local prefs and nightly build ones. So if I use my nightly profile in a local build and switch back (I regularly use ./mach run -P with a profile I also use to run 'stock' nightly as distributed by mozilla.org), my custom 'true' value for the debugging prefs is forgotten, which means that in just the last few days I have flipped that pref more often than in the month before that.

Can we use sticky prefs to avoid this situation?

That seems reasonable to me

I tested with:

Open Nightly, create a profile: new-profile
Flip remote / chrome / prompt prefs
Close Nightly
./mach run -P new-profile
Confirm I can open BT without prompt
Close local build
Open Nightly with new-profile
Confirm I can still open BT without prompt
