The Prefab Editing Environment skybox and light data are ignored when entering "Prefab Mode"



How to reproduce:
1. Open the user's project
2. Open Scenes > Bug
3. Select "Cube (1)" and enter Prefab Mode

Expected result: Prefab Mode scene looks exactly like the "Prefab-Environment" scene.
Actual result: Prefab Mode loses skybox and light data.

Reproducible with - 2019.2.0a8, 2019.1.0b7, 2018.3.9f1
Could not test with - 2017.4 (No nested prefabs)

  1. Resolution Note (fix version 2019.1):

    Skybox and lighting for Prefab Mode environment scenes now works correctly. This requires the lighting settings of the environment scene to have Auto Bake disabled.

    It doesn't work in 2020.3.24 HDRP. Prefab preview scene is black, without skybox and lights.

    If anybody encounters the issue. Try deleting the "Library" folder and restarting Unity. This worked for me. It seems like the old prefab environment was being cached.
