- Rated 1 out of 5by Firefox user 16370430, pirms 2 gadiemAppears to break all pop-up windows with Firefox 81. Resizing not allowed, all popups are forced to full screen. Happens in Google Chrome, too. App website does not appear to allow bug reports, so have to do it here, sadly. Deleting app and am unlikely to reinstall - this kind of coding is scary.
- Rated 1 out of 5by Firefox user 16361055, pirms 2 gadiemI wish I didn't have to rate this at one star -- but rating it low was the only alternative after I spent 15 minutes trying to find some support or a place to post a question! So why does the Guardian website not scroll with this installed. Guardian Tech support says DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials needs to issue an update. True!! And because this is a rating rather than support or a post, I will never ever know if there is an answer. :-(
- Rated 1 out of 5by Terrybass, pirms 2 gadiemEvery time I type in and click on a web site using this app it takes me right back to the DuckDuckgo search page . I can never get to the page I am looking for. Google takes me to the page I'm looking for This app does not. Very exasperating. I have used DDG in the past with great success, What is going on now ??

Changed it back to Google, but after the restart - it was changed back to DuckDuckGo.
- Rated 1 out of 5by malau, pirms 3 gadiemIt changed my default search engine to itself, with no option to change it back ! If I wanted to use DDG's not very good search engine, then I would. Absolutely uninstalled.
- Rated 1 out of 5by Dominique, pirms 3 gadiemI like the DuckDuckGo search engine and what the DuckDuckGo team tries to do, but this extension blocks the proper behaviour of some WEB sites under FireFox for no good reason. Typical example is easyjet's web site (easyjet.com) where various links stop working once the DuckDuckGo extension ins installed.
So, I'd say "nice try, but no thanks".
Keep the good work on the seach engine, but either fix the extension or drop it.
- Rated 1 out of 5by Mel, pirms 3 gadiemDuckDuckGo is my home page. When I turn off DuckDuckGo in my extensions, when Firefox starts, I no longer get my DuckDuckGo home page. I get some advertisement for DuckDuckGo privacy extension. Is there a DuckDuckGo search field on that unwanted web page? Yes. But that is the only thing I want on my home page. I'm tempted to report this extension as malware because it modifies my home page without my consent.
- Rated 1 out of 5by Firefox user 14515033, pirms 3 gadiemThis add on blocked comments on several websites I use. It took me awhile to figure out that this add on was causing the problem. I love Duck Duck Go but I don't love this add on.
