The Edit Avatar link opens and I can upload a new image. But it doesn't show up. Instead, the old image persists.

Thanks LH. I'll do that and mark the thread as solved.

PS: I posted two topics under Off-Topic related to changing the profile pic and email address. Mods are kindly requested to delete them from there. Thank you.
