Description

Hi there:

Twice today, I have clicked on Appearance/Customize and the site has activated a completely different theme, destroying all my settings and necessitating a complete site restore. Twice.

The first time, I thought I'd clicked on a wrong button, but this second time I was careful.

It's definitely a bug!

Hi @TracyCP, and welcome to WordPress Trac!

I'm unable to replicate this behavior on a fresh installation. Are you able to test whether it happens with all plugins disabled and a default theme?
