How/where do I change the DuckDuckGo url to the html page?

Hello,

I use NoScript with the Firefox Nightly channel and default search to DuckDuckGo. Where is the setting for the DuckDuckGo url so that I can direct it to the html page directly rather than wasting all the time and bandwidth of the search, the "You don't have javascript" filler redirect page, then finally the scriptless html page. The standard DuckDuckGo search address is as follows:

https://duckduckgo.com/?t=ffab&q=help+me

When you have javascript disabled, after all the redirects load, you end up at the address below:

https://html.duckduckgo.com/html/?q=help+me

My laptop is a tad on the old side, so the desktop environment taxes the system pretty heavily. I would therefore like to ask it to do less work for a search.

Hi Eric, on the Preferences page, Home panel, next to "Home page and new windows" you probably have Custom URLs. There should be a text box below that to enter/edit the URL.

Does that work on yours?

Or did you mean when you submit a search from the address bar/search bar?

Update

On the results page, click the Page Actions menu button (•••) and use the bottom item to add the html.duckduckgo.com search engine plugin. Does that work?

The built-in search engines are packaged as extensions and are not editable. You may need to create a custom search engine using an add-on or grab one from the Mycroft site (requires JavaScript):

I want to change the URL that the DuckDuckGo search plugin (the standard one) uses for searches to use the HTML page rather than the Javascript page.

Search Engines Helper might do the trick if it didn't hang on trying to export the search engines. It also never lets me actually add a different duckduckgo even after deleting the original.

I am back to needing the data that I asked for first. Where can I alter the default ddg url for searches?

Did you try this -- run a search on HTML DDG and then:
