Thanks, this is the correct command for the "user.js" file:

user_pref("", "/path/to/konqueror");

I find that I need a script for Konqueror for a different reason.  It
appears that Thunderbird can't use a command line with blanks in it even
if you use "s.  So, I added this to: "user.js":

user_pref("", "/usr/local/bin/konqueror-URL");
user_pref("", "/usr/local/bin/konqueror-URL");
user_pref("", "/usr/local/bin/konqueror-URL");

Then made a script: /usr/local/bin/konqueror-URL to do what I want.  This works 
but I get a new window for each URL I open so now I wonder if there is some way 
to get Konqueror to add a tab rather than opening a new window.
