Chromium global settings don't work as expected

When I set the global base url config for chromium as explained in “Configure Clients Centrally” (it doesn’t let me add a link) for Linux and I login with a complete clean user profile and open chromium, I receive the message in the settings:

Click here to reset to pre-configured settings

If I click there, the correct url is filled.

Why do I need first click on this? Or what changed this value on the very first browser start?

(Btw: on firefox this global add-on setting works like expected)

Hey @localhost feel free to open a ticket with the official support team at

Hi @bw-admin

We’re having the exact same issue here.

Is there a solution, which can be posted in this thread for all users to see, if they face the same issues or do all of them need to contact the support?
