    • Add the site "" to the whitelist.
    • Configure automatic updates > Always.
    • Uncheck "Allow some nonintrusive advertising".
  • Install the APK again (without uninstalling).
  • Observe:
    • Of the language-based filters, only English is enabled. (reset)
    • Under "More blocking options", no filters are enabled. (reset)
    • Under "Whitelisted websites", "" is still present. (preserved)
    • "Configure automatic updates" is still set to Always. (preserved)

I was not able to reproduce this issue on Nexus 5X with Android 8 and Samsung Galaxy S5 with Android 6.0.1

Truly bizarre -- this is reproduceable consistently on my Pixel, but not on any other device I've tried, including an identical Pixel from TestObject. Marking "WFM".
