How to change Style Editor formatting back so that CSS declarations stay on one line if originally on one line in the source CSS?

I'm weird I guess, and sometimes like to edit CSS with all the declarations on one long line rather than a hard return after each. The Style Editor in Dev Tools used to just display the CSS as it found it in the source file, but suddenly it's "helpfully" putting each declaration on its own line, even if its not that way in the source. I've looked for a setting for this to switch it back, but haven't found it. Any assistance would be helpful. Thank you.

There are only "devtools*pretty" prefs for the debugger to control "Pretty Print" and not for the Style Editor. There is also nothing in the toolbox setting, so I'm afraid that you can't change this.


The Style Editor automatically de-minimizes style sheets that it detects, without affecting the original.
This makes it much easier to work on pages that have been optimized.
