## Premise ## I only ask a question after I thoroughly and at my best knowledge tried various ways and also what I found in these forums an others. This is another weird one for me.

Firefox 126.0 on a Windows 10 22H2

Hi I have been using Firefox maybe for 20 years... and I noticed in the last possibly 5 years has started to have problems after problems. More like bothers and I am not the only one!

Problems with YouTube videos either not loading properly or no audio and so on, tamed down at present! At some point I stopped using it years ago, then got back to it, but since I did a series of different things/work via browsers, I now have some others set to do one task/work.

Firefox is not only the ;standard browser for 'browsing' and basic shopping.

Anyway, this time from yesterday, DuckDuckGo Search not working any more.

There have not been any Windows or Security updates yesterday.

Any other search add-on works fine, but DuckDuckGo.

What I did:

1. Restarted browser - the obvious one 2. I do not really need to clear Cookies as I use an add on that does it for me as soon as I close a tab or browser 3. Downloaded 126.0 and re-installed it on top 4. No new add-ons were installed, but IU also re-started with all add-ons off 5. Cleared history - everything 6. Internet is fine, reset it - just in case, but also tested on other devices and DuckDuckGo works fine 7. My security is not blocking anything

Has Firefox 126.0 had an heart attack overnight, meaning there is a bug that comes out in certain conditions?

I just get from DuckDuckGo: There was an error displaying the search results. Please try again.

Any other Search work, even the less known such as Qwant and Mojeek. No idea. I wasted so much time... again.

Thank you M

PS I may have missed other things I did try and I may amend this post or add posts, if I cannot edit.

AMENDED now!

When I stated I tested it with other devices, I meant my phone (Android 13), but I did not notice I was actually using DuckDuckGo browser which works!

Then tried: Firefox Focus with DDG search and get same problem Firefox and get same problem Brave and get same problem

Wondering if it is to do with Internet provider - these days they are TOO involved in our business - you know what I mean, with modems managed 'though' provider's servers - they FILTER. Welcome to the new century of 'controlled world!

I did reset Internet.

Thanks M

...It is DuckDuckGo the problem or so it seems.

I tried Qwant search and I guess they probably use DDG and it states 'now':

We are currently experiencing issues with search service being temporarily unavailable. Thank you for your understanding.

Hopefully is just that.

Yep, just saw it through Qwant search

Thanks for confirming, I wonder if they are working to get into Safari!

This is/was an issue with Bing and all the search sites that use Bing for their results.

I even saw the exact same problem on Ecosia last night. I thought that there was some kind of major coordinated attack on all the non-Google search engines last night. As Bing & DuckDuckGo also couldn't show any search results.

I first saw all these search engine problems using Chrome. So it definitely wasn't only happening to Firefox browsers. Thank goodness it's over.
