This usually mean that the file type association has been changed.

Check control center -> KDE componentens and file type associations for the 
text/html type.

The associated program should be "Konqueror", on top of the list and the 
command (Edit button) should be "kfmclient openURL %u text/html"

The %u tells KDE that the program can URLs itself, otherwise it plays save and 
assumes it can only do local files and downloads them (to the temp directory) 
before passing it to the program.
