I do not have a notification; I am in Konqueror, have plugged my pen drive in, 
split the screen right-left, and now want to go to /media/kingston
I could do this whith Go => Media, and can no longer do it; Why ?

Is that another case, like dropping the Find File from Tools, to make 
Konqueror less and less usable, to force users to move to Dolphin ?
A case of "We are KDE of Borg, you will be assimilated" ?

<RANT>It pains me to see parts of Linux getting more and more Miscrsoft-like 
in the way users are treated </RANT>


PS I like Konqueror, do not like Dolphin...
                      Why is it that to stop Windows 98,
                        you have to click on "Start" ?
