The first answer listed, about Settings>Applications>Quicklaunch... That did nothing to fix the problem. To think something so infuriating could be fixed with something so simple. Thank you so much. I can't seem to reactivate quicklaunch the same way, but I really don't care to reenable them anyway!

After reading this thread and then studying the quick launch feature more I was able to fix the issue by simply double tapping the search button on my phone.
Another double tap on the button turns the quick launch short cuts back on.
Evidently my ear or cheek must of turned on the feature some time today.
There you go no need to completely disable the feature.
