Been getting surprisingly many Russian results in DDG recently.
Looks like the "DuckDuckGo HTML" search engine I installed in Firefox includes a region setting. Sigh.
@ayo Hmm, you could remove the search engine, then go to duckduckgo.com (maybe switch to your language specifically), and then click "add search engine" in the search bar? *Should* do the trick.
@rixx The only option available is "Add a keyword for this search". I don't see how to set that as default search engine. I'm sure this used to be easier in earlier versions of Firefox.
@ayo I'm using "DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials", fwiw, but just adding the search link should work, too, possibly with https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/add-custom-search-engine/?src=search for ease of use/ for ease of editing.
I mean. Relative ease 😬
@rixx So I can choose between letting DDG run code in my browser even when I'm not using DDG or using an extension with the following disclaimer:
"Due to a technical limitation with Firefox WebExtensions, all data entered when creating your custom search engine is uploaded to file.io."
@libre Huh, I thought they had dropped OpenSearch support. That works, thanks!
Qwant (easy) or provider searx (gotta look one up to arbitrarily trust, medium), self-hosted searx (gotta look up everything all at once, goodluck, extreme)
