Startpage/DuckDuckGo search plugins that use POST

Post your tutorials for using Pale Moon or performing related tasks here.
Note: Not for "how do I...?" Questions!
Forum rules
Tutorials and Howtos should only relate to Pale Moon, and not to third party applications. e.g.: Don't post a Howto for configuring your firewall.
If you have a question how to do something, you should use one of the support boards, not this board. It is meant for people to document and post instructions.

Startpage/DuckDuckGo search plugins that use POST

Post by moonbat » 2019-09-01, 03:34

For added privacy, Startpage & DuckDuckGO offer their search using POST instead of GET so that your search query is hidden from the referrer for the sites you visit. The search plugin for both however is only offered using GET.
I was able to change them so thought I'd share. Save these as XML files in the searchplugins/ directory in your Palemoon profile, and restart the browser to use it.

Here's the POST version of the DuckDuckGo plugin, found at <install location>/browser/searchplugins.

In both cases, I've changed the name so that it doesn't overwrite the existing 'GET' versions and you can use either method.
