    Well that explains something for me because I had the same problem this afternoon. I'll happily use the instance you provided for now and check again tomorrow.

    So, rummaging through the list, this instance of Searx stands out:

    Searx Belgium

    (Don't forget to go into Settings and turn on all of the search engines you want it to use, before using it for the first time. It doesn't use the settings that you've set from other instances of Searx.)

    Oh, that figures, I didn't notice that last bit. I'll check the search engines again. Didn't get much time today.

    Well there sure are a lot of preferences and I'm struggling to work out why SearX Belgium is better than LavaSearx. You may need to explain some of the settings. I've got the basics but I feel a little out of my depth here.

    I took a quick look and changed a few setting (other than turning on a lot of the search engines available).

    I turned SafeSearch off (no children in the house.) I enabled a couple of the Themes and Styles just to make things look less boring.

    I changed a number of other things just based on my personal preferences. I don't think that there is anything that you have to play with if you don't understand it.

    Every time I use SearX I find myself giggling. It reminds me of the first time that I used Google after being used to Web Crawler. The difference in how effective a search is is quite noticable.
