If I set Konq to proxy via, then I get the same results as
with Firefox: no DNS names can be resolved.

For example:
"Your request for could not be fulfilled, because
the domain name could not be resolved."

So this looks like some kind of privoxy issue. But I haven't changed
anything from the installed configuration, so I don't have any idea what
could be wrong.

Here is my complete privoxy configuration file (with all the comments removed):


forward-socks4a / localhost:9050 .

confdir /etc/privoxy

logdir /var/log/privoxy

actionsfile standard  # Internal purpose, recommended
actionsfile default   # Main actions file
actionsfile user      # User customizations

filterfile default.filter

user-manual /usr/share/doc/privoxy/user-manual

debug   1    # show each GET/POST/CONNECT request
debug   4096 # Startup banner and warnings
debug   8192 # Errors - *we highly recommended enabling this*


toggle  1

enable-remote-toggle 0

enable-edit-actions 0

buffer-limit 4096


Do you have any idea what is incorrect in that file?
