DDG as default message still present even after removig DDG as a search engine in about:preferences#search
Firefox 78.0b5 , Firefox nightly 79.0a1 (june11)
Download latest Romanian Beta firefox build
Install addon https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/duckduckgo-for-firefox
notice the message "An extension, DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials, has set your default search engine."
Scroll below, and delete duckduckgo from the list
Duckduck Go has been removed.
Noticed that now GOOGLE is your default, even with the addon still installed.
"An extension, DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials, has set your default search engine." still shows up, even after restarting.
duckduckgo is not your default anymore and it goes to google default.
its kind of a grey area because the user still has the addon installed and chose to remove duckduckgo from the list of his engines.
Im not sure if google should be default or the DDG with new code should still be default even if user removed it from about:preferences and kept the addon installed.
so its complicated to decide what is the correct result, but differences show because of this.
