Unless you are running KDE 2 (default for me was KDE 1.1.2) you aren't
seeing Konqueror, but the older kfm, which while it works pretty good,
does lack some browsing functionality. But to open it (kfm) straight up,
click on the third icon from the left of the toolbar along the bottom...

Location: spot, where it lists the directory '/home/yourusername' and
delete that and enter the url you want. Or press Cntrl+O and enter the

Dunno. Haven't needed them. Open Netscape, go to
Edit-Preferences-Advanced and make sure that Java and Java Scripting is
enabled. That makes a big difference.
