    I use firefox52.1.2 and duckduckgo.com search. In options I turn search suggestions and most other things OFF but I find the search suggestions coming back and have to reset choices. Is this normal or is it something I am doing like clearing history and will just have to keep resetting it? When I open up options I find all the choices turned on even though I thought surely I turned off and saved.

    Hi Bill.
    Are you deleting your cookies?
    This may be a reason why your settings in DuckDuckGo may not be permanent.
    Do you use CCleaner by any chance?

    Dougie- Yes and Yes.
    Rustys- I shall try this.

    I checked the Browser settings and cleared history. Setting still show no search suggestions.
    Checked DuckDuckGo search settings. All the ones I turned off remain off including the no suggestions. Only the Auto Load is turned on. Just like when I set it. Somehow they are staying set at this time. Will watch them to see if change. Never monitored it before then I noticed search suggestions were appearing.

    That is good to hear if it happens again you have a way to see where it is happening.
