I've tried everything (I think) but still can't save my settings. Cookies are deleted upon closing DDG. I am running Ghostery.
Not choosing to use the "cloud" option, I tried these instructions found on this forum:
DDG-engine URL parameters
- settings are appended onto the DDG-engine URL as codes
eg, kaa=p&ku=1&kn=-1 in https://duckduckgo.com/?kaa=p&ku=1&kn=-1
- the pre-assembled compound URL can be copied directly from the Settings page in [Bookmarklets and settings data] link (very small link at bottom left of the Settings (dialog)
- copied coded-URL is then used as the DDG-engine opener (URL)
It doesn't work for me. My settings preferences revert to default every time I open a new session of DDG, even via the bookmarked URL!
Any thoughts or referral to another post I may have missed? Please be patient as I have little tech knowledge.
Thank you all
