This is because the search bars use the HTML-only service which is
available at http://duckduckgo.com/html. The main DuckDuckGo website
uses Javascript that is technically free, but it is not declared using
the GNU Specifications for such, meaning that LibreJS won't allow it.
Also, many users don't use Javascript at all. This is why it uses the
HTML service. DuckDuckGo has recently improved their HTML-only site.
