good point... I add a number of extensions that could be in play here
(from my work desktop):
adblock filterset.g updater
ie tab (m$ only)
tab mix plus
The extensions installed can vary between platforms, but those are what
I usually add on. I also use greasemonkey (for mediawiki) but saw the
problem before I started using it.
I wish I could provide an example of the problem, but I see it randomly
and (thankfully) infrequently.
As for the original question - I'd vote for Firefox over Konqueror. But
that is strickly personal opinion, it suites me. I don't have hard
facts or objective opinion in this case, just subjective preference.
...and when you get right down to it, that's usually what it boils down
