I’ve been having a problem in Gmail where my contact picture was not being saved. It would be there for the session, but if I changed computers or browsers my contact picture would be reset to an old photo that I don’t even remember uploading.
Searching for answers yielded nothing but I finally figured something out. I clicked the “older version” link in Gmail. Once in the older version I deleted my contact picture and reuploaded a new one. I saved the new photo and when I went back to the “newer version” all seems fine.
Gmail must have an issue in the “newer version” even though it doesn’t seem all that new. I hope this helps someone.
UPDATE: This is not a permanent fix. After a day or so my contact picture was deleted again. C’mon Gmail.
