Why does the theme change back to white every time I log in?

Kind of annoying having to change the theme back every time

    It is tied to device using cookies I think. If you use private browsing (as I do) you will lose the setting each time you exit your browser or change device.

      Just to avoid the inevitable question: yes, Deimos is thinking about adding an account default theme.

        If you have any way of setting a cookie yourself you could probably get it to be persistent. The cookie is called theme and possible values are:

        • empty for White
        • light for Solarized Light
        • dark for Solarized Dark
        • black for Black

        It's just stored in a standard cookie, so if you're wiping those on each session it'll be lost. As mentioned, I'll probably add the ability to set an account default as well.

            May I suggest Endless Browser? Quite rudimentary, analytics blocker rule set is tiny, but you can whitelist tildes.net in cookie settings, which would be perfect for your needs. You can stay logged in on ~, but if you visit (say) wired.com, all non whitelisted cookies will be purged after 30 minutes by default.
