Browser randomly uses Baidu instead of Google

I have Google set as defaul search engine. Still, sometimes when I search something with the browser (type a word in the address bar) I end up in Baidu's web page. This is kind of rare but still happens randomly. I have Jolla C with Sailfish 2.1.0.11. Not the most important bug to fix, but strange still.

That's really weird. Maybe you should take tcpdump?

Hey, alloj and thanks for the tip. Anyhow, I'm really basic level user when it comes to technical stuff of linux or sailfish. Have to admit I have no idea what that even is. At least yet :)

I experienced the same bug already in 2.0.4.13: https://together.jolla.com/question/147537/bug20413-default-search-engine-in-browser-changed-after-update/ Do you have the " Search engines for Sailfish Browser" (https://openrepos.net/content/coderus/search-engines-sailfish-browser) installed?

uninstall and fresh install solved the upgrade problem...
