This seems to me like a DuckDuckGo limitation which we can't do much about, no? Or are you implying that it works fine on desktop with DuckDuckGo?

It works on Desktop as well as Firefox browser in Android.

Okay, a quick glance seems to indicate that this is caused by us on mobile using the /html version of DuckDuckGo for some reason.

Is using the html version important for security?

This doesn't happen when going to duckduckgo.com manually.

I believe this came over from Orfox. I don't know the history of this decision, but I assumed it was for reducing javascript usage (for performance and privacy) -but I don't know if I'm right about this. I don't have a strong opinion on using /html. Or, people can petition DDG to support these search options on /html.
