Let's throw my opinion here, in case it matters...

Firefox warns once, and the "do not show again" is checked. I think that 
is a good compromise.

I disagree and Germain Garand wrote down a good reason why not to do.
I also disagree because I don't like that we need to hide our identity 
because some programmers fail to verify if their page works in Konqueror 
or not, and they fail to do it because of commercial issues.

I agree, just as a master password on first usage.

I'm not sure about it, I like KTip. :)

I use maximize/minimize for double click, but I agree with those saying 
that this would make shading less easier to find.

And if you close it?

In the classic menu there isn't a Computer group. Favorites is...very 
usage specific, so I'd keep in the main menu as well.

See above.

See the Klipper case, although I think this one appears as soon as you 
open a wallet, so it might go away.

This is what I always hate in KUbuntu. I don't use Kontact, I use KMail 
and sometimes KNode. I oppose to this change, those are completely 
usable standalone applications that should be easily available to the
