I'm afraid I have no help for you - I lost mine too until I did a fresh Edgy
install just before Christmas.  Even then, the darn thing won't show if I'm
browsing a directory, only a URL.  Dammit!  I like my konqueror windows to
stay the same, I don't _want_ to see a difference between browsing the
local filesystem and a remote web page.
