I just switched to DDG as my default search engine for Firefox, Pale Moon, and IE 11, after Ixquick decided to create Startpage with Google (I hate Google).
The problem is that when I use the DDG settings to change some defaults (for example, to open selection in a new tab, or to underline result headers), the settings don't stick. I understand that the settings are stored in a cookie. Is this correct? The problem, I believe, is that I always use private browsing, and make sure that all cookies are deleted when I close my browser. Therefore, when I open my browser, the DDG settings are gone.
Is this a correct assessment of why this is happening?
How can I fix the problem (without giving up private browsing)?
Thanks for any help you can provide.
