DuckDuckGo was working fine as a search engine but within the last month, the search results are flashed for a second before the whole tab goes to white blank displaying nothing. I removed DuckDuckGo privacy extension. Switched temporarily to Google. Search results were fine. Switched back to DuckDuckGo as default engine. Same problem is experienced now.

Thanks. First one I disabled in the add-on control page was add-blocker ultimate. Saw a lot of improvement but not 100%. Eventually running with Add-blocker extension enable for the browser but disabled specifically for duckduckgo and it seems to have solved the problem.
