Description of the issue:

Search inquiry not functioning. I receive a message: “500. Site not available” or “Confirm you are not a robot” This seems to have started after most recent update. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling already but with no luck. I use a VPN also but disabling it makes no difference. If I use a different search engine in the Brave browser, I do not have this issue.
