Dolphin occasionally doesn't respond to me typing the name of the file/directory to select it

One thing that I’m sure many of you commonly do in their file browser is navigate through folders by typing in the first few letters of the folder, and then dolphin would select the folder, and then you can press enter to move to it. This lets you navigate quickly using only your keyboard.

This used to work very well when I was in Plasma 5.27 and from what I can remember, I haven’t had issues. After upgrading to Plasma 6, I noticed that occasionally this stops working. I can’t really pinpoint or recreate the problem reliably, it just seems to happen randomly, and it would fix itself randomly as well.

I was wondering if anyone else has encountered this issue, or perhaps I’m doing something wrong, and if I should raise a bug report.

My distribution is Manjaro Linux, I am using:

  • Plasma version 6.0.5
  • KDE Frameworks 6.2.0
  • Qt Version 6.7.1
  • Kernel version 6.6.32-1-MANJARO (64bit)
  • Dell XPS 13 9360 laptop
  • Wayland
  • Mesa Intel HD graphics 620
