    I would suspect that flash drive itself. Start with an fsck of it.

    Thanks, Carlos. I checked the flash drive, and there were no fixes. Just in case, I reformatted it. At any rate, the View Properties problem no longer exists, since I've upgraded to 12.1 and switched to KDE as well. I opened one of the PDF files, and it seems to have had no effect on Dolphin. Thanks, everyone, for your suggestions!
