I am curious.  Always in the past those who use Kubuntu KDE have always 
recommended to use default applications.  I used to use Firefox.  It had a 
feature that I preferred, the ability to make Google my home page with nothing 
else on it.  I have sense tried to become a mainstream supporter of Kubuntu 
KDE everything.  I found that I actually prefer Konqueror over Firefox now, 
for the things I am able to do on that start page that cannot be done in a 
firefox opening.   To my memory, this is my first real problem with Konqueror.  
It appears to be a bug or something like one.  It is probably because of my 
inexperienced use of the application and not even a bug.  

Consequently, I appreciate the workarounds but would rather not give up on 
Konqueror.  If I can fix the error, and learn what I did wrong, I won't have to 
give up the various extras that Konqueror provides.  Thanks all, though.

If I can't fix the problem, of course I will use your workaround with
