Netscape plugin support for Konqueror
This package includes support for Netscape plugins in Konqueror.
This package is part of KDE, and a component of the KDE base module.
See the 'kde' and 'kdebase' packages for more information.

Don't know what it does but it might help.
The big draw back for me is doing Gmail with it, it defaults to the
basic functions and will not do the advanced stuff so back to FF.
