Windows 10 Trying to change my default search engine from Google to DuckDuckGo When go to options/change default search engine only google, amazon.com, ebay and wikipedia are shown as options. Weird since I don't believe most of these are search engines. Added DuckDuckGo as an extension; tried Firefox in safe mode; refreshed Firefox Searched help topics. I'm stuck!

Chosen solution

Hi, Amazon, Ebay and Wikipedia are default search engines as is DDG. To restore default search engines, in Options > Search, click on 'Restore Default Search Engines' under the 'Search Shortcuts' list. More: Add or remove a search engine in Firefox
