Enabling dark theme causes crash on every reload (e.g. after hitting enter/starting the search, going back from settings, manual reload etc.). [http://a.pomf.se/yoqkdo.png]
After reloading again, it works fine until the next reload.

Happens with as well as without any extensions or userscripts.

Superbird (Chromium) Version 33.0.1750.12 (242851)
Windows 7 64-bit

I've replicated this in Superbird on Win7. Strange, only in the Dark theme.

Overlap between "The search engine that doesn't track you" and the icons:

Design/translation issue.

One solution approach can be shorten the translation of "Set as homepage" for all the languages with this issue. But maybe a best way it's changing the css.

Step to reproduce:
1) Set "Español de Argentina" as Language in Duckduckgo settings (probably others languages affected)
2) Open https://next.duckduckgo.com/

- Firefox 29 (in chromium and konqueror it's working fine)
- Opensuse 13.1
- Notebook - Resolution: 1366x768

Hi,

Trying to create a new Bookmarklet with my region settings in the new version...

Going to https://next.duckduckgo.com/settings , changing the region & then clicking on 'Bookmarklet and settings data' doesn't appear to do anything. No new URL is generated.

I am running firefox with quite a few privacy add-ons (ghostery, httpseverywhere, self destructing cookies) but disabling each of these didn't seem to help.

Hi,

- Browsing on Chrome 37.0.1995.1 canary SyzyASan

- Windows XP SP2

Running smoothly. I couldn't reproduce the bugs from the Chromium guy. Since my version is the alpha build that will some day become the stable release it may indicate that the bug is indeed already resolved/superseded.

Also, congrats. The new version is so polished that when I look at it I can see myself shedding tears of joy.

I've used my ipad to try and change themes in the menu and it does not work. If I use a normal computer it works fine

Enabling the "Hide query" Address bar option, results in no searches at all.

"Failed to load part of this page" at times, but that's more the 3DS browser being the 3DS browser.

The 3DS browser doesn't like/trust the SSL certificate (probably from the change after Heartbleed)

It works but it just feels wonky (more the fault of the 3DS browser probably).

On Firefox, if you have Flash Player set to "Ask to enable" and click on any video in the DDG search,
clicking does not cause the pop-up to appear asking you if you'd like to enable flash on the page.
(People that have flash set to manual may think the videos don't work due to this)

Having constant issues with this set-up:

Dolphin 10.0.1
Android 4.0.1
Huawei Ascend Y200

Today, when attempting to type in the home-page search box, no keyboard comes up.

If a keyboard comes up, the spelling suggestion row does not appear (DDG is the only site that seems to affect the keyboard this way).

Usually, when typing in the home-page search box, no shifted characters are accepted. I thought initially it was just capitals but now I realize the exclamation mark is dead, too, so I cannot use the bangs.

The only way I can effect a search is to go into settings and use the search box at the top of that page. It’s the only one that accepts shifted characters.

Everything works fine in Chrome Beta 35, Opera 12, Firefox 29 and GNOME Web (Epiphany) 3.10 on Xubuntu using a HP Pavilion G6 laptop, and on my 5th gen iPod Touch using the latest Chrome, the latest Safari and the latest Mercury browser (free version) everything does well too.
