a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Payment option 1 year and 10 months ago
Hello and thanks for the feedback. To accept donations to disable ads would require search account which could be perceived as a means of tracking. DDG already has a setting to diable ads, should you care to do so. Here's more information: https://duck.co/help/company/donations

Thanks!
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Why does the forum link in the top menu redirect to duckduckhack? 1 year and 10 months ago
The duck.co domain is transitioning to be more of a IA development area and less for use as the general forums. We are currently looking into potential replacements for these forums and I can suggest that you take a look at the duckduckgo subReddit: https://reddit.com/r/duckduckgo .

Thanks!

We just reverted this change. Sorry for the confusion, we underestimated how often people were relying on triggering bangs this way. Going forward we're going to try to address the problem from a different angle, possibly clearer indication when a query will trigger a bang, or a message for first time bang users. Thanks for all of your feedback, it was helpful in coming to a conclusion here.

Your's would be a good example of using either the Cloud or Bookmarklet methods for saving\accessing your settings. Another option would be to whitelist the DDG cookies to prevent them from being deleted when running maintenance.

Thanks!

Sorry about that. We did indeed roll out a change this morning that now requires a space.
We've been getting increasing amounts of complaints from users that were getting redirected to third party sites unexpectedly by performing searches that included exclamation points in the middle of them.
This issue would often be flagged as a security problem with users thinking their browsers or DuckDuckGo had been compromised because it was sending them to sites they'd never heard of seemingly randomly.

I suggest that you use the new DuckDuckHack forums and review the Getting Started and Docs sections.

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling DDG as firefox search engine, cannot install 1 year and 10 months ago
What I'm saying is that the Restore button remains disabled until you remove one of FF's default search engines:
Default:

Removed !G:
[https://i.snag.gy/vVdBlk.jpg]
Since DDG is already in the default search list, there is no reason to add it, though you may want to set it to your default search.

If you are seeing results other than I've explained you may want to create a new user profile and try from there.

Thanks!
