Thanks for the info. I did manage to add DDG as the search engine for Thunderbird in a roundabout way.

I am trying to add DDG as the search engine in Thunderbird 45.4.0 (the latest version as of this writing). but all my attempts, following instructions on Mozillazine and in DDG help https://duck.co/help/desktop/thunderbird, they don't work. Can anyone here help with this issue?

Is it possible to enhance the contrast of the DDG result page search box on top? In the attached image the DDG main screen search box has good contrast and the result page search box color on top has little contrast and is difficult to see. I tried a number of color combinations but the problem is the same.

Thanks for the reply, I am aware of the standard themes but I prefer to use my layout and colors, that's why I asked, If is not possible, then consider this post closed. It's not worth our time. Perhaps some day . . . . . .

is it possible to vary the ddg logo color for better contrast? with certain background colors on the main search page the logo is nearly invisible.

Gone but not dead. What I liked about DDG is their good search results as good, if not better than G. plus the ability to personalize the search page. Thanks for the email address and will write to them.

My DNS server is OpenDNS and my ISP is a small local company. I have no problem connecting fast to anywhere else. As for my web browsing habits being tracked, can do nothing about it. I am being followed even when using DDG. Lost my paranoia long ago because when I clean the cookies, it seems everybody follows me, which includes Facebook, of which I have never been a member of and keep a 1000 miles distance from them. I also know that my name and email address (gmail) has been a well traded commodity, and if it wasn't hacked, then sold by some merchant I purchased from.

Guess the business model of DDG is not working. The servers are constantly down, which means they don't have the funds to improve their service, This is not a new issue and has been discussed here often. And like those who who found it a very frustrating experience, I have to move on. pretty colored search pages are just not worth it. Google, here I come.

Using 46.0b8 beta version of Firefox the privacy controls are not enabled. I allow everyone and anyone to track my shopping habits and web site visits, I couldn't care less.
