Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

On Stack Overflow, I logged in just now and noticed my gravatar was changed to my Facebook picture (using Firefox). I never changed it myself and thought it was strange, so I changed it back. After that, I launched Google Chrome and logged in again from there, and my facebook Picture was there again instead of the Gravatar. I have no idea why this is happening, but wanted to report it here.

I assume you mean on Stack Overflow? – FDinoff Jul 1 '13 at 21:41
@FDinoff: Yes, edited. – Jesse Good Jul 1 '13 at 21:41
Did you login with facebook? Also you appear to not have a gravatar - that's why we're using the facebook one...we didn't consider this case though, hang on. – Nick Craver Jul 1 '13 at 21:42
@NickCraver: Yes, I clicked on log in and then clicked the Facebook icon. I can change back to my old gravatar from my user screen, what do you mean no gravatar? – Jesse Good Jul 1 '13 at 21:43
I can repo this (on Stack Overflow) simply by logging out, and logging in (with Facebook), even though I have a Gravatar which I've been using for years. – Matt Jul 1 '13 at 21:44
@JesseGood can you reproduce this now? – Nick Craver Jul 1 '13 at 22:10
@Matt can you retry now please? – Nick Craver Jul 1 '13 at 22:11
@NickCraver: It appears to be fixed. Thank you for the quick response. – Jesse Good Jul 1 '13 at 22:24
@JesseGood awesome, thanks for the confirmation :) – Nick Craver Jul 1 '13 at 22:26

We intended to do this for Facebook users only when they first login (as did) - that logic wasn't correct. A build is rolling out now to ensure it only happens on user creation (not every time you login). You can unset/change it once in your profile if you don't want it, and it'll stick once the profile (since it won't even try to set it again).

A build is rolling out now that will behave correctly - give it a few minutes.
