I changed the theme, but every time I search for something or go to DuckDuckGo front page or settings, it takes at least half a second for the new theme to appear -- yes, it's just half a second, not a very long time to wait, but it's getting annoying, it happens each time. I'm first shown the default theme and then, after half a second, the theme I chose appears.

(If you don't understand what I mean, sorry; my English is not very good so it's pretty hard for me to describe issues like the above one.)

Yes, this has been discussed several times on the forums. It seems to be more prevalent with some browsers than others and seems to be related to saving settings via the cloud instead of the available non-tracking browser.

Hi. We released a bug fix that fixes the white flash for users with the dark theme on some browsers, e.g. Safari. Please could you check that it's OK for you now? If not, what theme and browser version/operating system are you using?
