    This feature had been fixed about two months ago (i.e., approximately 3/1/2021), and was working just fine, UNTIL the beginning of this month (i.e., 5/1/2021). Now the Weather Module of My Yahoo defaults to "Clackamas, OR", not where the "Detect My Location" points to. It must be corrected manually upon each refresh. I wonder if anyone is keeping track of the changes that are being made to the Yahoo software, and whether anyone on that team is reading any of these comments. It is baffling to think that this can not be corrected, permanently!

    Yahoo/Oath technicians have been tinkering with their new weather provider and modules for two years, and still cannot get things right! The local weather for me defaults to somewhere in another county, all of the saved places do not display any weather until they are individually opened, and if I adjust the local weather location by using "Detect my location", it does not stick, and must be reset every time the My Yahoo page is refreshed! Absurd! The staff's attention to detail (and hundreds of related comments) is clearly not being reviewed by supervisors responsible for quality control of the Yahoo products. Maybe someday... But how many users will remain?

    This Yahoo Weather behavior began 11/23 or 11/24/2018, and continued through that weekend. I was able to make changes using the "Detect My Location" pop-up dialogue box, but they didn't take effect until Monday, 11/26/2018, presumably when the Yahoo/Oath staff went back to work after the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. The corrections worked only for a day, then returned to the erroneous behavior of detecting my location far from here.

    The Yahoo Weather and profile settings no longer include the ability to list all of the locations that I monitor, and to customize that list. Poor design change, and frustrating!

    I use the Yahoo Weather that is in My Yahoo, and have for years. It is unfortunate that changes have reduced its usefulness, and accuracy. I hope Yahoo staff will fix this omission, soon.

    Yahoo formerly had a Yahoo Weather app. Then OATH bought Yahoo. Then OATH stopped supporting Yahoo Weather, and now uses The Weather Channel. (The same thing happened to Comcast/Xfinity in early 2019. Slowly, TWC began adding back features that users had previously enjoyed, such as favorite locations.)

    This week, Weather started correctly showing my current location, but still will not allow the Favorite 'star' to be populated, and will not allow any additional favorite locations to be added. Links to the Privacy Dashboard are a joke, and do not provide any of my favorite locations.

    Finally, to illustrate this absurd roll-out of The Weather Channel for Yahoo Weather, the page for Weather correctly displays my current location (likely determined by Windows, not Yahoo), but the location in the Title Bar is shown as "Topeka, United States - Weather Forecasts | Maps | News - Yahoo Weather". I am on the West Coast!
