Query on closed Bug #762
Also, I wanted to update you that in all my testing today (I must have done at least 50+ searches) I haven't had a single issue. All that's changed in Privacy Browser is that I have enabled the "Allow screenshots" setting.
I'm going to be disabling the "Allow screenshots" setting and checking over the next couple of days. I'll let you know.

You can comment on a bug report even after it is closed. However, I can also answer questions here in the forum.
The setting in Privacy Browser to allow or not allow screenshots has no possible effect on the loading of websites. Whatever correlation you are seeing is purely coincidental.

Thanks for coming back to me again.
I hope Startpage doesn't require everything that you mention otherwise that would put me off using them in the future.
The reason I was thinking this was a potential Privacy Browser issue, rather than a Startpage/Duckduckgo issue, is that going to "requests" in the privacy browser menu and then straight back to the webpage causes the web results to display. It doesn't look like it refreshes the webpage just refreshes the phone display. Hopefully you can confirm if going to requests in the Privacy Browser settings and back would cause a webpage reload?
I was going to get into the problematic scenario, go into "Airplane mode" and then go to "requests" and back to see if the results do show. If that worked then that would mean the page has loaded correctly but something was causing them not to display on my phone screen.
Hopefully you can see my logic.

I just had the issue on my phone. Startpage loaded with search text at the top and "web|images|videos|news" tabs showing.
I used the drop down menu to enable "Airplane" mode on my phone.
I then went to "requests" in the Privacy Browser settings.
I then swiped back from the right side of my phone screen.
Starpage displayed the search text at the top, "web|images|videos|news" tabs AND the search results showed.
Not sure sure what could be going on, but hopefully then helps show that the webpage isn't being reloaded when going to "requests" in the Privacy Browser settings.
