After the latest design changes (Metro style) when going to Y!Mail page, Yahoo asks me two things:

  • to upgrade change my browser (I click "Continue without upgrading"):

  • to personalize my inbox with a theme:

Even if I select my favorite theme and click the Keep theme button, every time Yahoo! asks me these questions again and again! It also forgets my selected theme.

Did anyone find a solution to this problem? How can I fix it?

Do you have third-party cookies enabled? – Eight Days of Malaise Oct 13 '13 at 13:41
Try changing it again from settings, after you enter the app. Try choosing a different one from Cog wheelThemes → choose one → click Done and see if remembers it this way. – Alex Oct 13 '13 at 13:48
@EightDaysofMalaise What's that? How can I enable them? I have cookies activated. – Ionică Bizău Oct 13 '13 at 14:00
@Alex That didn't work for me... :-( – Ionică Bizău Oct 13 '13 at 14:01
That’s strange, because these settings are stored server-side, so I suspect a glitch/bug. Try setting this from a different browser/computer. – Alex Oct 13 '13 at 14:14
