Just an addition to my post. I just fired up Wireshark (Ethereal) . Using
Firefox, and going to http://www.opera.com, I get lots of activity on
Wireshark, and can connect to the Opera site with no problems. If I try the
Opera site with Konqueror, I get absolutely nothing showing on Wireshark.
It's like Konqueror is not being recognised as a webbrowser. All that
Konqueror displays when trying to access a website is.
An error occurred while loading http://www.opera.com:
Could not connect to host http://www.opera.com/.
All a bit weird.
