    Default Konqueror - minor weirdness

    Hi,
    I switched recently to Konqueror and Kmail.
    Kmail works just fine and i am happy with it.

    There are, however, some minor issues with Konqueror.
    Example one. Printing works sometimes, sometimes not. I was unable to print a coupon out for a free exam for a vet.
    Also, if i go youtube, it doesn't play the video. Plugins are there, so in theory it should work.
    Right now, this is under KDE 4.4.4 and Konqueror same.

    Haven't checked if thats actually a common bug.

    Otherwise works fine.

    I don't see anyone else jumping in here with an answer for you yester64. While kmail may be great, why would you want to use Konqueror over say Firefox? I do use Konqueror as a file manager sometimes, but not for web access. Is there any reason you could not stick with Firefox? I just got to ask this question.

    Thank You,

    No, no particular reason really. I thought its a good browser but it does have some limits regarding web.
    I use both now.
