Konqueror/emacs et al

I'm a new KDE user, love it so far. The mailing lists page didn't
have a list for Konqueror (surprisingly, to me), so here I am.
For Konqueror to have a chance, for me, I need emacs key bindings in
the location bar. I'm going to guess that file dialogs also do not
have emacs bindings. I can't find any config setting, also I can't
find anything on Google. I'm surprised this isn't asked every month.
Ok, so how DO I get emacs key bindings?
Second question. Mozilla goes right to a short URL when I type it.
Konqueror only does this for 'www'. For others (say I had a host,
oh i don't know how about 'mailman') I have to prefix it with http://,
otherwise it does a google search for me. Annoying. Any way to make
it look up names before going to search? Better yet, I should have to
tab explicitly (like Mozilla) to highlight a Google search autocomplete.
Third question. Anyone seen a bug where a tab keeps the watch cursor
forever? eg, go to www.iozone.org and download the linux i386 rpm.
By download, I mean, single click, and save it somewhere. That window
will now have the watch cursor forever, no matter whether you reload,
visit another URL, whatever.
Last question. Is there a way to rebind keys in general? C-l doesn't
seem to have a function, I'd like to have it take me to the location
bar (instead of / in addition to ALT-o).
