When you changed the settings did you remember to save the changes?

If you did, could it be that Firefox clears cookies on exit.
DuckDuckGo uses (non-personal and anonymous) cookies to save your settings.
So, deleting those cookies would restore settings to default.

Exactly, better privacy is deleting all kind of cookies once you close the firefox. That might cause the trouble.

Thanks guys for the reply. Actually, I do save the new settings after I finish changing what I want and my cookies aren't automatically deleted every time I quit Firefox. Actually what I do is that every time I change something, I open a new tab and check the change but as I mentioned above, those two settings in particular don't get saved and everything else works just fine. Maybe it's a bug or something?
