And that was me. When can we see the new forum take off?

Thanks for the followup.
I just entered gmail (with no .com or .net seen in the url bar)
Anyways, it seems the issue has resolved itself now, I have absolutely no idea why at first .net version was prevalent!

a comment on the General Rambling Firefox auto complete in OSX 5 years and 9 months ago
On a new OSX install, I followed the usual process on any new OS, installed Firefox, DDG add-on, ADB add-on, ...
When I use the url bar and basically just type gmail (with return or with control+return), it goes to www.gmail.net which is a bogus website.
Since other entries in url bar such as "test" result in https://duckduckgo.com/?q=test I thought this might have something to do with DDG add-on (and default search engine being set to DDG via keyword.url in about:config) and wanted to report this here.

Wow, is this a Christmas toy gift :)
Only that I could not do "ls" which is the first thing I do on any new shell.

I suggested a similar idea on DuckDuckHack (here), I also suggested saving scripts on the cloud and retrieving them. If sand-boxed one can use this to test new plugins and send them to DDH when matured.

I also have another suggestion, why not leave an edit box in the add-on that I can press 'h' and use DDG search again? (within the box)
This way I can do a !g search something, then press 'h' and refine my search. I already use Firefox search bar (Ctrl+k) but this makes going back and forth between !g and DDG more seamless and natural.

Thanks! I hope we desktop users also will get it.

When I search with Google  (which would be through !g) I get the DDG quick-answer box, but it is in the default orange color, instead of my terminal/Green&Black DDG theme. I use Stylish to color my Google in black background, and something Orange there does not look very good, but if was taking color from my cloud setting it was the right color.

Also the white FG on white BG looks very pale:

One more thing, can we keep the DDG color theme on instant answers when searching with !g ?

Looks interesting so far, started using it.
Any idea on when we can get auto-complete feature? Not like the obnoxious Google instant, but something simple that helps in completing the words.

Install the portable Firefox on a USB, and set it to use DDG
