Specify opening page on Konqueror


When I open up my Konqueror Web browser it defaults to this location...file:/usr/share/doc/HTML/index.html. I want it to go to www.google.com instead.

actually the home url in the preferences doesn't make it open to that page. Just so that when you click on the home icon it will go to that url....stange.
