DDG was disabled somehow in my Safari by Google, won't reinstall

Every time I download the extension and try to install it, I get the error message "An error occurred while installing the extension “DuckDuckGo”." I'm using Safari 9.1.3.

How do I get back out of Google/NSA-land?

Sorry about that, can you try this and let me know if you encounter the same error:

1) Open Preferences > Extensions and uninstall the DuckDuckGo extension if it's there
2) Safari > Quit Safari (make sure it closes completely)
3) Re-open safari and navigate to duckduckgo.com
4) Click 'Install' on the popup and try re-installing the extension
