Vivek, I had this problem recently too. I had to resubmit my address
several times, as the city kept being erased when I pressed saved. If
you've already put your address under Location, perhaps redo it or refresh,
log out, then try again. It takes time but it worked for me.

Hello Valeria. How are you?
Please answer my questions or ask who is responsible for this problems.
1) Why this glitch still not fixed?
2) why do you cause inconvenience for freelancers?
3) do you think this is normal?

Hundreds of people suffer from this problem and you can answer only "we don't have a timeframe at this moment." WHO HAVE???? 

Great service and support. Hope your personal problems will solve as fast as you help us ;-)

I just got an email indicating the same thing. Have tried to respond to the email three times with no response. Got onto chat help and got a ticket number but was told I had to wait until someone checked out my account. My address is still the same and I have no idea why this happened. Looks like I'm not the only one and it seems like it's a site-wide problem? Why aren't they getting this fixed? I tried applying to to a job today and couldn't I've tried to respond in a timely manner and they haven't responded back! It's so frustrating!
