Can't search for many simple, innocent terms

I installed Brave on a Win10 PC but find that I cannot search for lots of simple things (Google or DuckDuckGo) e.g. ‘split fingernails’ or ‘headphones’ and lots more. But it can do some things so this is not my internet connection. What have I missed in setting up?

Hello @Kolya, thank you for reaching us out. Do you have Safe Search enabled in those search engines? Also you can try going to https://search.brave.com/settings and disable the Safe Search from there. Let us know if that helps. Regards.

Just to confirm for the benefit of others - this is clearly a Microsoft issue because I now have the same problem with Firefox searches (it was OK until yesterday) but it’s fine with Edge/Bing. I’ll have to find out what they’ve done (without asking!), any suggestions welcome.
