Thanks. Looks like they've changed their site so that an account is required for searching.

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Is it too early to start using DDG as your only search engine? 3 years and 11 months ago
Like @buckeye I've been using DDG as my default search engine for several years too. If some results don't seem relevant there are some options:

* Report it to the devs here: https://duck.co/feedback/relevancy/- so they can make improvements
* Suggest an Instant Answer here: https://duck.co/ideas , e.g. when I search for "xyz" it would be cool if DDG did "abc".
* Use !bangs, e.g. to search for shoes on Google use "!g shoes" - more info: https://duckduckgo.com/bang

Sounds like a Firefox 31 issue. On Firefox 38 it works fine and the search bar gets focus on page load.
