No, not acceptable to me. Marking the icons insensitive is justified
because the quantity and relative position of the icons never change.
I don't like how the icons cannot be selected if they don't match a
search. This is an overload of search results and button sensitivity.
Marking the results some other way, such as by change to icon stroke
brightness, is acceptable.
I think the search is without purpose. It only searches icon text. One
can't use it, for instance, to find "color", "radio" or "discard network
history". I wish the search either did not exist, or searched also
configuration items inside icons.
