Configuring/removing default search engines (DuckDuckGo overrode user search)

  • I had a custom search set on 'd', and now an update overrode that with DuckDuckGo. I know I can just pick a new shortcut for my search, but not being able to configure or remove the default searches was already annoying before and now it actually slapped me in the face. I gather there's some js file I could edit to address this but if patches keep doing this kind of thing, it'll get incredibly frustrating. Please allow full search editing even for the defaults.

    edit: Browser info: Version 26.0.1656.32, Windows 7 64-bit.

  • It's not the expected thing.
    I saw an older thread about it (try searching "DuckDuckGo" or "DDG" here), and, IIRC, there was talking about certain adware there...
