For the past couple of days, DDG visited websites remain the original colors and don't indicate the visit with my selected color. Deleted the cloud info and recreated new settings, What else can I do?

The visited check mark shows next to results you've already visited. Your browser indicates which links you've already gone to so we're not tracking you!

Here's the takeaway:
  • Keeping track of previously visited page is a function of your browser and not of the web site.
  • The default DDG theme uses a check mark [http://snag.gy/rBplT.jpg] to indicate previously visited pages. Other themes are available that use the more traditional color change.

    Thanks!

In reply to DDG:
I changed the appearance colors (only). Wouldn't the check mark still appear?

If you change the Result Visited Title Color, the custom color replaces the check mark.

What browser are you using? I remember I had the same problem when I changed some privacy setting of Firefox.

Using 46.0b8 beta version of Firefox the privacy controls are not enabled. I allow everyone and anyone to track my shopping habits and web site visits, I couldn't care less.
