I think that's the Google Search bar - it _should_ work by entering text... 
then again it's CVS you're using....

I think it's been a bad choice to make this google bar visible by default. 
This adds unecessary clutter to the already said-to-be 'feature rich' default 
setup of Konqueror.
It should have rather been optional since it's easy to do the same thing with 
"gg:" - and this doesn't use up precious space.
Maybe there could be a "new user's wizard/guide" that tells people how to use 
such less visible features and where to enable things like the google search 
bar, be they needed, instead of enabling redundant features by default.
