I'm having the same problem and am as confused.  My KDE and Konqueror is 2.2 
and my plugins are in ~/.netscape/plugins/.  I've heard version 5 of Flash is 
a bit dodgy - can anyone confirm this?

Also, are you running Konqueror in a full KDE desktop?  I run Enlightenment 
and have noticed some of the wizzier functions only work when I start a full 
KDE session.
