in thread Sometimes Perl is awesome: Duck Duck Go edition
I was earlier using the DDG search engine for Firefox searchbar, which is using the non-https URL. So, I manually visited the https version of DDG and repeated my searches, while logged in to Google+ ($work allows G+, but not gmail; go figure!). I also disabled Adblock Plus, for good measure.
I was now redirected to https://encrypted.google.com, but the results were same as earlier.
