Description

When I search something into KDE 'App Menu' (Start) it appears a shortcut to search the word into google translate!!! :/

I made a capture, see attachment.

This is worse than I thought.

Plasma 'application launcher' reads web bookmarks without the option enabled into the 'plasma search' preferences. 😱

[User-level solution]

#kde IRC: " right click on the application launcher, go to application launcher settings, and uncheck the 'expand search to include bookmarks, files and emails' option. "

I think that option shouldn't be enabled by default. :/

while clearing house on the bug tracker, i noticed this BR which is a few years old now - is this still a concern?

KDE is becoming increasingly difficult to maintain support for, and has gotten little attention lately
