Bug#538144: Option "Open folders in new windows" is BROKEN, rendering konqueror unsuitable for purpose
Under "Settings"/"Configure Konqueror...", under "File Management", there is an option
called "Open folders in separate windows". I have had this option on since day one.
It is absolutely essential -- I cannot comfortably browse files without it.
It just broke. Now folders open in the same window despite the option being set.
What's worse, dolphin doesn't even have this option. Although someone lied to me
about that -- see bug 532883.
Please fix this promptly. I will have to switch to another desktop environment if
this is not fixed very, very soon.
