Wikpedia search extension issue

Description of the issue: a chrome extension not working in private browsing

**Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary):

  1. install wikipedia search extension by Corbin Davenport.
  2. go to brave menu -->extensions —> look for wikipedia search extension and click on details button below it --> toggle “Allow in Private”.
  3. in normal tab(non-incognito) go to address bar and type wiki and then space, the extension shows the icon and you can search with suggestions appearing below

Hello @freddie_freeloader,

It’s not a solution for the extension not working, but did you tried Keyword search? No extension required, and work for any search engine. https://support.brave.com/hc/en-us/articles/360017479752-How-do-I-set-my-default-search-engine-

i am aware of it. the advantage with the extension is it shows suggestions while i’m typing.
