Can confirm this in
version: 2.83.3, branch: master, commit date: 2020-07-22 06:01, hash: 353e5bd7493e, type: Release
and in
version: 2.90.0 Beta, branch: master, commit date: 2020-08-03 22:28, hash: 9de5adc6a1a9, type: Release.

It is a bit strange. The preferences and render preview (F11) seem to use the same window.

"Confirmed" in this case means confirmed as a bug by a developer.

@Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) I have to apologize, sorry. In the future I will only comment if I can reproduce things.
