Expected result:

Brave Version( check About Brave):

Additional Information:

Hey @jlhillhouse !

What device and OS are you using?
What Brave version?

If you are on a Desktop, if you go directly to the search engine that you want to use, i.e duckduckgo.com, it will appear in your Search Engines.

Go to Menu icon ā†’ Settings.
Look to the left sidebar and click on Search engine.
Click on Manage search engines
And under Other search engines, you will see duckduckgo as an option to make as default.

Do this with the search engine of your preference.

Hope this helped!

Can you send a screenshot of what you are seeing?

Thank you,

Iā€™m not sure how to send a screenshot to the forum. I tried on the email response and it would not go through? Thank you.

Hey @jlhillhouse ! Sorry for the delayed response.

The issue is that when you add a new search engine, Brave needs to know how to use it.

Click on the 3 button menu for Ask and click on edit.
On the pop up that appears, look for the URL with %s in place of query field.
In the textbox, enter this :
https://www.ask.com/web?o=0&l=dir&qo=serpSearchTopBox&q=%s

You should be able to make Ask.com your default search engine.

Hope this helped!

does not work??? thank you for trying

Hey jlhillhouse,

Try opening up a new profile and seeing if you can add Ask in that. If anything, what GreenBananaPorridge was referring to should look like this:
