Hello, Frank --

Thank you for making that change -- your message arrived in "plain text" 
--- so everything is working properly in this respect.

Kevin assumed or implied that you begin by opening Konqeror, and by 
giving it the "focus".  From that point, the directions are correct 
exactly as he specified it -- but you seem to need one small refinement.

When you go to "Configure Konqeror" and actually click on it, you will 
see a display that has two "frames".  The left-hand frame consists of an 
expandable list of configuration options.  As a solid general rule, the 
very first category is "General".  You do not need to "expand" that 
category to make the necessary change, but you might feel better about 
doing so.  With or without the "category expansion", the top line should 
still read "General", AND should have "the focus"

If it isn't there, scroll up until it IS there.

If it does not have"the focus" (usually indicated by a blue-colored 
highlighter-bar), then single-left-click on it.

At this point, you should see the address-bar selection tool that Kevin 
mentioned; as Kevin stated, it is near the top of the right-hand 

You may select any existing option -- or you may specify any address 
(whether local to your own machine, on any of the intra-nets you may be 
connected-to, or on any Internet location of your preference).  I hope 
that these details prove to be adequate for your purposes!
