advanced settings ONLY WORK during present session
when I log out they revert to duckduckgo default settings.
e.g. turn off safe search and save and exit.
leave duckduckgo and next login duckduckgo reverts back to safe settings enabled.
This happens with ALL settings. changes. restart duckduckgo and back to default.

By default settings are stored in non-personal browser cookies (in your browser). If you are losing these settings, your browser (or one of it's add-ons) is probably configured to delete cookies on exit. You can exclude the DDG cookie from deletion to keep your settings.

You can use Anonymous Cloud Save to store your settings in a more permanent way (on a remote server in the cloud). No personally identifiable information will be stored in the cloud, and your pass phrase will never leave your browser.

You can also use a bookmarklet URL, for example:
disables Safe Search
