Problems with Duckduckgo.com - images search not loading and fav icons, problems with IP/DNS?

[ Edited ]

hi there,

 

i personally use https://duckduckgo.com as a search engine which i really like. i noticed that for some reason when i am on o2 network either 4G or 3G, doesn't matter, the image search is not working, it shows all broken images.

 

the images are loaded from proxy.duckduckgo.com which seems not to be resolved on the o2 data connecion.

 

can someone tell me why?

 

i like DDG as a search engine for privacy reasons.

 

example, here i am on my connection at home and no problem loading

 

https://proxy.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=https%3A%2F%2Ftse2.mm.bing.net%2Fth%3Fid%3DOIP.aeVtwDnvKISpr7Xuya...

 

that is the url of what is loaded when you go to images search and open in new tab.

 

finally here's what i get

can anyone try this if it happens on your end as well? i think o2 network does not resolve proxy.duckduckgo.com

 

many thanks,

Gabrio

It has to be something with my samsung settings possibly.

I just downloaded duck duck go's app browser and does just the same. All broken images. Also with incognito and samsung browser. Oh on my wife's phone does just the same. Galaxy s8.

Someone had a similar issue on a pc and he whitelisted proxy.duckduckgo.com that is where images are loaded from and fixed that.

Also for me no problem on any wifi, ehich is the strange thing...... if it was something on the phone it shouldnt work on wifi either right??

I forgot to add, Samsung Note 4. Tried on both O2 and home wifi so not a Samsung thing.
