On Remote Desktop Sessions (Terminal Services) your settings are volatile in the sense that whatever modifications you do, will happen on one server and the next time you land on another server you experience this loss of preferences.

It is recommended that you have 'My Documents', 'Desktop', and 'Favorites' folder redirected. I would also recommend that your 'Application Data' folder be redirected also (but some would argue that it is best not to). In this way all your settings will be saved in a shared path regardless of which Citrix server you land on.

If you are talking also about certain app settings then you need to do some tweakings to get your settings free of loss; read this article to see what I mean:

Yes ,this is for single user.

The registry changes needs to be done on citrix server or user desktop?

The changes have to be done on the citrix servers.
Are you using Citrix Profile Management? If so, enable logging through GPO and check the logs in C:\Windows\System32\logfiles\UserProfileManager

Enable logging:

I had an issue where user profile where not created and no settings saved, this was because the user already had a profile on the server before he logged on, it does not seem to be the same as you experience, but just a tip to check.
