Context searches in private tabs use default search engine when set to use DuckDuckGo

Description

When setting private tabs to use DuckDuckGo for searches, the right click menu search continues to use your default search engine.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Open a private tab.
  2. Turn on the “Private search with DuckDuckGo” toggle.
  3. Highlight any text, right click to open the context menu and search for text.

Actual result:
The search page opened uses the default search engine set in the user settings.

Expected result:
I expected it to use DuckDuckGo as that is what the text on the private page seems to indicate Brave will do.

Reproduces how often:
100%

Additional Information

I’m not sure this is really a bug. If not, consider it a feature request. I feel strongly that searches in private tabs should all use the same engine, regardless of whether the search came from a context menu or a search bar. The DDG search toggle isn’t much good if you have to remember which search methods it works with.
