#20809 closed enhancement (fixed)

Use non-/html search engine URL for DuckDuckGo search plugins

Description

The DuckDuckGo folks asked us to use https://duckduckgo.com instead of the /html variant as the former provides a better search experience. They implemented a redirect to the /html version for users that have JS disabled. Thus, we should be good to go. We should switch the .onion URL as well.
