Yes. I find it won't work with my online bank either.  

I think this points to the real tragedy here.  The guardians of KDE have 
declared that they are moving the marvelous file functions that have been

Konqueror as a web browser only -- an inferior (as compared to FF) web 
browser instead of a superior file manager.
