I have had the same problem periodically with Konqueror, so I try to use a 
stable version rather than the latest.

I have three browsers on my computer, Opera, Firefox, and Konqueror.
I usually use Konqueror first, but I find that each browser has advantages 
over the other two and if I had to pick one that works better than the 
others, I would say that Firefox has a slight lead, with Opera coming in 
second.  Konqueror still has some difficulty using plugins that Firefox and 
Opera can use.

I am using Xandros 3 and Debian "Sarge".
