Shopify CLI for theme development - Preview your theme link is NOT the dev theme

HI.

After running

shopify theme dev

The generated "Preview your theme" link seems to be linked to the live store, not the local dev theme. Whereas the "Customize your theme at the theme editor" link works fine. If I make changes in the local theme editor, they are not reflected in the "http://127.0.0.1:9292" preview link. I have only been getting this problem since yesterday. I seem to have lost hot reload suddenly too. The only way I can preview my local theme is by creating a theme preview link and viewing that. I have tried running shopify theme dev on a different port, and have also rebooted several times. Any ideas?
