This is fixed now. You will get prompted before any searching is done just like

There lies in the problem... Unfortunately you have a rather old version of
kwebkitpart. Because of some mishap the latest version should say 0.9.6 and not
1.0.0. Perhaps that is confusing the distro packagers and they are not updating
it ?? No idea, but you can rest assured this works in the latest version minus
the "automatic scrolling" feature of course.

No it is not yours alone. It seems to be a distro problem. If you can poke
whomever is responsible to update the kwebkitpart package from extragear that
would be great. They should use the latest version for KDE >= 4.4. 

Anyhow, thanks for your report. I will close this bug report, but would you be
so kind to open a new wishlist item ticket for the unimplemented "automatic
scrolling" feature so it won't be forgotten ?  Thanks again.
