If konqueror crashes, next time it starts it notes that it didn't close
correctly and asks if you want to resume that session. Unfortunately I
don't believe it's possible to do that with closing it normally, but if
you issue a killall -9 konqueror (from a terminal window or krunner), it
causes the kernel to "kill it with extreme prejudice", IOW, without
letting it save its settings. That should do it. You could of course
setup a quick script with a menu entry or icon somewhere that you could
click, to do it for you, if desired.

That should be reasonably easy to fix. Simply delete the firefox
settings/profiles/database and let it start over with a new one. That
info should be under ~/.mozilla. If you wish, you can try saving it
elsewhere (backing it up) and restoring a bit at a time, until you find
what file is triggering the crash, and/or use the strace -eopen technique
