Browser crashes when searching from the address bar on private windows

Description of the issue: The browser will crash when you enter something into the address bar in a private window. Normally it will go to the search engine produce results but it crashes every time in a private window.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. DuckDuckGo is the default search engine (not sure if it does the same for different engines)
  2. Open a private window
  3. Enter anything in the address bar and hit enter

Expected result: The browser will completely crash

Brave Version: 1.19.92

Additional information: This only happens on private windows, not regular ones

EDIT: Now when I search anything in private windows the browser crashes too
