Please switch to duckduckgo's hidden service so searches are more private and work without javascript.

PS. I heard Orfox is switching the bug-tracker over to the official Tor Browser so I filed it here.

Thanks for the report. Will do!

FWIW: One of the reasons we did not switch to the onion was the fear that it could not scale to all the Tor Browser requests. IIRC it is not necessary to have it for working without JS either.

Closing as a duplicate of #21483.

+ reducing keyword fragmentation (orfox is not a common keyword).

Also re-parenting, so that it gets placed in a nice UI for the ticket this is a duplicate of.
