I haven't seen that problem yet, so I can only guess.

First, go check your folder mime type/file association 
(inode/directory), to see if it has been changed to start Kaffeine in 
stead of Dolphin.

If not, then try and view the folders in Dolphin.
Open Dolphin from the K menu, and browse to the folders shown in the 
folder views.
In Dolphin, do all folders also open Kaffeine?

If folders behave properly in Dolphin, but not in folder views, try to 
remove the current folder view plasmoids.
Then add them again, to see if freshly added folder views corrects the 

If it doesn't, try to restart KDE.
I.e. log out, and then log in again.

If the problem persists, you _could_ try to restart the computer 
proper. One never knows.

If the problem is still there, I'm blank.

Unlock widgets, and add widgets.
The K menu button is a widget :o)

Actually there are two K menu widgets - one with the new menu style, 
and one with the old menu style.
