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?

  • 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.

  • That’s strange, because these settings are stored server-side, so I suspect a glitch/bug. Try setting this from a different browser/computer.

These settings are stored server-side, so it’s probably just a glitch/bug. Try setting the theme from a different browser/computer.
