Changing 9930 default search engine to "Startpage"
 
Open the browser.
Press the Menu Key. (Left of mouse)
Select "Options"
Click "Manage Search Engines"
Click "New Search Engine"
In name field type "Startpage" (or anything you want to name it)
Then in the address field type: "https://startpage.com/do/search?language=english&cat=web&query=%s"
Save your work and there you have it. Startpage is now your default search engine.

Why would anyone want startpage as their default search? Sounds like an old adware / spyware hijacker from 2004 - 2005.

It looks like startpage is up to the same old tricks.
