I tend to be extra paranoid, and set my Firefox homepage to a DuckDuckGo URL that specifies searches via HTTPS with the search query in the encrypted request body. If there was a way to set the search box to take advantage of this, too, I would love to know about it.

I'm not sure: duckduckgo comes by default as a searchengine option in
firefox? Personally, i deleted yahoo,bing,amazon from that default list
and added: ixquick (https), metager (https), firefox help and leo (a
vocabulary). Mycroft as a source of hundreds of searchengines is useful.
