Yesterday i started getting white outlines when using the Healing brush tool in Photoshop. I've changed multiple settings; including bitrate and RGB/CMYK. I just updated my Photoshop but the probleem seems to still be an issue.

 

The attached files are my settings and a video of the problem.

Tweaking the healing brush settings like mode, aligned and diffusion didn't seem to solve the issue.

You seem to be misusing the Healing Brush Tool, you may want to use the Clone Stamp Tool when extending a Layer’s content into the transparent regions. 

You could also try »Current & Below« but I think that is not what you want.

I've used the healing brush tool like this for quite a while now and it works fenomenal.  The clone stamp tool creates unblended edges which i would have to edit later on to look like the exact output of what the healing brush tool used to be (without the white borders).

 

Besides how or how not to use the tool, it still shouldn't have the white edges right?

You are applying the Tool on transparent areas while set to »Current Layer« – that is not what the Tool is intended for so the result does not seem completely surprising. 

Quote from the Reference: 
»The Healing Brush tool paints with a sample or pattern to repair imperfections in a image.«

I just tested with the oldest Photoshop version I still have installed (CC 2017) and the Tool does not seem to work differently there.

This whole part i extended the same way last week, without any white borders. When i do the exact same thing now, white borders appear. So definitely things have changed it the past updates...

As I already mentioned this happens even on Photoshop CC 2017 so: No, this has apparently not changed with the latest update. 

Maybe you had a white Backgroudn Layer visible so you didn’t notice the white edge.

What difference does it make anyway? 

When you want to use the Healing Brush on the whole transparent area you can address the edges as you go.

You're right. If only the white edges where the problem, i could solve it by removing them indeed. But another problem is that with every image, the tool creates this greenish overlay the further i move from the original image!
