Cannot create or restore wallet in private tab

Description of the issue:

I am unable to create a new wallet, or to restore an existing one, when I am using private tabs.

  1. Open private tab.
  2. Open “Brave Rewards”.
  3. Click on “Yes, I’m in!”
  4. Brave claims it is “Creating wallet”, but nothing else happens.

It happens this way every time I try it.

cc @sriram @Mattches,

I believe Brave Rewards is disabled in “private window” and “private window with Tor”.
