When a folder is loading, the status bar goes missing and so there is no way to stop the load anymore.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Navigate to a slow remote location in Dolphin
Main view shows "Loading..." but the status bar disappears completely while loading
The status bar stays there
Linux/KDE Plasma: git master as of 2021-09-27
Huh I thought this got fixed. I can't reproduce it anymore with my current git master.

[Status Bar] Don't mess with status bar visibility in extensions
"Extensions" is additions to the status bar like free space bar
and zoom slider which should hide while loading.
The status bar itself should only show/hide based on the global setting.
