in your browser's settings... like, check to see if you have firefox configured to use a proxy or not ( Edit -> Preferences -> General -> Connection Settings ) and then compare that with your konqueror's settings... if one is configured for a proxy and the other is not, then that's probably your issue right there...

hmmmm... are you able to ping the WWW??
Code:
ping -c5 google.com
i'm not sure what could be causing your problem... if you start firefox from a terminal (command line) do you get any error messages when you try to surf??

sounds similar to my problem, although I have got some more apps working but not all (I posted for help earlier today, although noone has replied). If your terminal takes 20sec+ to load up then I guess its a reverse dns lookup issue. I had to go through and make sure that my hostname, dnsdomainname and /etc/hosts had the correct stuff in, if they are slightly wrong it causes some odd problems with lots of programs but according to web pages i have been reading konqueror does not suffer from it. I think that hostname should be one word, and domain two seperated by a fullstop and then the hosts file should have the fully qualified domain name and the hostname and the domain name each as seperate items under the local host ip....although since I havent fixed my pc completely I guess I am wrong somewhere. Check out by earlier post for my net settings and check against yours...
