I have been using Konqueror to participate in SE sites since always. But since two days ago it no longer works. I can open any page, but some actions no longer work, incl.:

  • opening a list of comments "add / show 2 more comments"
  • upvoting a comment
  • being able to see tag suggestions when asking a question

Konqueror version being used: "4.4.5 (KDE 4.4.5)" (I didn't do any upgrades recently).

  • First guess, as always: stale cache? we've made some changes to the JavaScript lately; if your browser has incorrectly cached old data, that might indeed cause problems. Does a hard refresh solve the issues?

After looking at the site with Konqueror, there seem indeed to be some issues with jQuery (happen on the jQuery homepage as well).

Since neither we nor jQuery officially support Konqueror, I'm afraid all you can do is file a bug with Konqueror (or with jQuery; but that would probably have to be accompanied by a patch, I guess).

Let me add a personal note: After fighting with Konqueror's debugger for half an hour, I'm kinda glad I don't have to do that too often.

  • Allow me to agree... even though Konqueror is distantly related to Chrome - they're not comparable. Mar 24, 2011 at 20:35
  • That's rapidly going to take it to the "sorry, can't help you" level.. While things (everything considered) do move fast at camp KDE, It's a lot of things.

  • That's too bad. But anyway, thanks for your effort. I use Konqueror daily at home, but looks like I need to find another Personal Favorite Browser. Currently I am giving Chromium a chance. Mar 24, 2011 at 21:14
