A bunch of Qt updates came through Pacman last night, a few for Qt6 too, and it seems like the icon appears now, so this is resolved

Use a lighter colours for the Collection Filter QSearchField
The placeholder text for the QSearchField in the Collections tab is currently black, making it hard to see on operating systems using a dark Qt theme such as KDE Plasma. Perhaps a lighter grey colour could be used to make it stand out more and this colour would also not clash too much on light themes.
Also, the background of the search field is very close to that of the Collection background, making it blend in even more. Though having lighter placeholder text could potentially mitigate this, changing the colour of the QSearchField could make it more visible to users. For instance, the same colour as the search box above the playlist view.
I investigated potential ways to go about fixing this myself but I'm not that familiar with Qt or the QSearchField library, so I'll leave it open as a feature request.
RE: Make Entire Spanner Icon Clickable
@jonas Thanks for the fix! However, the arrow does not show up on Linux with the Fusion style either. My screenshots were taken on Arch Linux with KDE Plasma, the arrow does not show up for me. I'm unsure about Windows or macOS, I'll take your word for that
Make Entire Spanner Icon Clickable
The Spanner icon that is displayed beside the search bar on the Collection menu does nothing if the icon itself is clicked, and only displays a menu if the blank space to the right of it is clicked. The menu that appears under it should show up if the spanner icon is clicked at all, and some kind of visual icon should appear beside the spanner icon to indicate that there are further options.
I believe it would be more intuitive if clicking the spanner icon brought up the Strawberry preferences window, and if the menu was only pressed with the gap to the right of the button is pressed. Also, in this case as well, the gap should have some visual indication that a menu will appear, such as a triangle facing down or a dot.
I would also like to mention that this feature would be welcomed by Plasma Wayland users such as myself. Currently, global menus do not work in the vast majority of applications, so this button is the only way for users to access the Strawberry settings. I was originally writing a bug report, because I thought the spanner button did not work. It wasn't until I accidentally happened to click on the blank part on the right that I realised I had to click there to summon the submenu.
The functionality that happens when the spanner icon is clicked can be discussed by developers, but I believe the entire button should be clickable and do some sort of action, even if it is just simply summoning the submenu.
