Why is it that when Firefox opens it opens too Google and not DDG. I thought they where part of the privacy thing.

You have to go in and change it yourself! It's very easy, just go to your search bar and hit "Change search settings" and change your default to Duck Duck Go! I also recommend making Duck Duck Go your home page so it's the first thing that opens when you start up Firefox! Hope that helped!

I think that is your web browser configuration, check over preferences and General, what's on firefox preferences over new windows or tabs?

Regards.

In short, it has to do with funding. It used to be that Mozilla was largely funded by !G but that changed at the end of 2014 and now their largest benefactor is Yahoo, which is now the default search engine in FF.
