The search toolbar is not in the list.

I just tested creating a clean profile. The search toolbar still is not in the list. I'm guessing the searchbar is hard-coded into the Location bar.

I'm guessing the rsync option is hard-coded too.

In my KDE 3.5.10 setup I don't have the search toolbar showing. The searchbar plugin is installed. After all these years I don't remember how I disabled the search bar. I don't have the rsync plugin installed in 3.5.10.

I'll have to tinker. I think the toolbar layout is defined in $HOME//.trinity/share/apps/konqueror/konqueror.rc.

I have disabled (unchecked) the options in the Settings/Extensions menu. No effect.

I suspect a brute force method of removing those options is to remove the plugins. I am not passing judgment on these features --- I see their usefulness. My concern is for those people who don't want the features. They should be able to disable them using the normal options. Right now I can't find the option to do that.

This is a usability issue, not a performance or stability issue.

Unless somebody has an answer then this is starting to look like a bug.
