duckduckgo partly unresponsive

I'm in Japan and since a couple of days the duckduckgo search engine is literally unreachable for me, which makes it unusable for me.
Basically I'm using FF on Mac, but it shows same behaviour with other browsers.
Any idea?

What do you mean it's "unreachable" ? You are not able to connect? You have technical problems to set it up as home page or ... ?

Meanwhile it looks to me like a FF problem. Last time I tried with other browsers, the page came up extremly slow and not at all in FF. Today I tried again with several different browsers (Safari, iCab, Opera) and the page and results came up instantly, but in FF neither the search box produces results nor they page comes up, if I enter directly the address.

I know that, in the past, users in the Pacific region have reported slow or no connections at times. I believe that this was in Australia. One or more of the leased servers must be having issues.

Hi Q,

Sorry to hear that. I checked our response time graphs for our server in the Asia Pacific region, and it seems pretty static. The checks originate from Japan so I would expect the results be comparable to what you would experience. Is it still slow for you?
