Blocking designated websites from search results

I recall recently discovering an option that allowed me to designate websites that I no longer wanted to see in my search results. I thought this was x-useful as it seems there are a few websites that frequently appeared near the top of the search results that were "come-ons"; that is when you click on the link in the search results, they only offered an option to "sign up" for access. I don't want to see this junk, and I did add one website to the list.

I've got another one I want to add, but I can't find the interface to add this website to the list. I thought it was a DuckDuckGo feature, but I don't see it anywhere! Is this a Firefox feature ? ... or have I lost my mind  :P

OK - I've found the issue & apologies for for my dementia :) It wasn't a setting in DuckDuckGo - it was in an extension named 'DuckDuckGo Hide Unwanted Results Plus'. I disabled several extensions recently for troubleshooting & failed to restore this one after finding the problem.

Oddly - DDG's search results failed repeatedly to find this extension, or any of the other, similar extensions that filter search results; e.g. `uBlacklist` and `Highlight or Hide Search Engine Results` which are also available through Mozilla.

Which leads me to "wonder aloud" on some of the negative comments on DuckDuckGo that now appear from time to time. I obviously don't know what's going on, but it does seem to me that DuckDuckGo's search results have become noticeably less relevant over the past year. I find myself more frequently having to call on Google search (gag, choke, spit) to get useful results.

What search engine are you using to do the search.

I use DuckDuckGo most of the time; that's why I said I thought it was a DDG feature. But it could be I don't recall that accurately. I do recall it being quite easy to set up, and that's probably why I don't recall it clearly... I didn't suffer enough  :) lol

But I don't see the feature in Mozilla either.
