 bug_16322_v3 (https://gitweb.torproject.org/user/gk/tor-
 has a slightly different patch for review. It turns out we had two DDG
 search plugins in our tree, one added by Mozilla in
 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1061736. That one got loaded
 earlier than our own which caused the breakage with JavaScript disabled.
 Moreover, the Mozilla one tracked from where the user was searching by
 adding a search parameter to the query. My patch gets rid both of that
 feature and of the duplicate DDG .xml. And, yes, thanks to the patch by
 the cypherpunk the URL gets set to the onion service.
