How to get DuckDuckGo as Search in New Tab

Posted

Hi,

I have DuckDuckGo as my default search engine, as well as being set as my Home Page.

Could someone tell me what I need to do in order to get DDG Search Box to appear when a New Tab is opened please?

Thank you,

Ian

Hello, in order to do this, you will have to use an add on/web extension. Example below: New Tab Override, to make changes to the New Tab page.

Once installed, open the Add-ons Manager (Ctrl+Shift+A) > Extensions, then look for New Tab Override and click on Options to set your preference.

Hi Zachary_ -- My thanks for your speedy response, as well as your most brilliant recommendation.

I have added the "New Tab Override" Add-on, and it seems to be working wonderfully well.

Best regards,

Ian
