Re: possible cause? Re: iceweasel locking up under KDE, fine under Xfce

My next step in debugging was to rename the ~/.config directory when
logged out of KDE plasma, and then logging in and starting iceweasel.
That ran fine, so I reverted the ~/.config directory and moved the 16
most recently modified files and directories under it out the way, and
again logged into KDE plasma and started iceweasel, leading to a lock-up.
I then moved the next 16 most recently modified files and directories
under ~/.config out the way and logged into KDE plasma and started
That would suggest that one or more of the second group of 16 of files
and directories under ~/.config were responsible for the lock-up.
However, after several cycles of logging out of of the KDE plasma
desktop, moving the files and directories back a few at a time, and
logging back in again, at no stage did I experience another lock-up.
I did find that kwin was not using the Plastik style that I had
previously, (and some other window behaviours were also different from
how I had set them) so I changed them under "Window Manager Settings"
and was again able to log out of KDE plasma and back in again and run
iceweasel without problems.
It appears that there was some configuration that kwin_x11 was reading
that had lead to the lock-up on loading iceweasel, but I have no way of
finding what that was now.
Is there any documentation on what configuration file(s) kwin_x11 uses?
If I had known specifically where to find settings and move them out the
way for testing purposes, I could have saved some time in isolating the
