When using private browsing mode all searches are redirected to Baidu. I have set Duckduckgo as search engine and it works in normal browsing mode (if you wait browser to load start page first).

If that really is so then it is very seroius breach of privacy IMHO!

That's strange -- I have the search engine set to duckduckgo here and when I do a new search in a private tab it does the search in duckduckgo. I set the default to duckduckgo via the search engine plugin on OpenRepos.

I'm not sure anymore. Now when I tried to repeat this, it work as expected and opens Duckduckgo site. I will close this question for now. But I'm sure this happened, and not only once but occasionally.

Requires more investigation how and when this happens.
