Is DDG the only website that has issues? (g00gle has issues too? Also if you type duckduckgo.com directly into the url bar, does it change to wisss?)
Do you have any addons? (Disable all browser addons)
Do you have any proxies? (direct connection to internet)
Who is your ISP if no to the above...

No addon that does things like that behind your back is ever necessary. Report it as malware if you have the time.
