WHAT? SUX??? Man, you didn't hear it. NO one man who listened to it said it's sux. So you're just lying. And what about 'Tool'. Is that pretty song sux too? Ok, I have thoughts and reasons - Do you have smth? Probably, if you wanna say "f*** you" to me, I'd suggest you to mail me. I'm bothering to tell Mandrake IS another Window$... cuz it'sssssss true.

Ok, lets tone it down a bit. Keep the discussions on topic and the emotions a bit low.

Thumbs up solved!

I understand this is a very old thread, and bumping isn't appreciated, but as this thread is in google's top ten when I search for {"Open folders in separate windows" konqueror} I thought I'd add a solution.

I have had the same problem for a long while now, that is; even when the "Open folders in separate windows" checkbox is unselected in konqueror, all folders open in new instances of konqueror.
I spent ages googling to no avail, and asked several so-called "linux experts" at a certain site... I had everyone stumped.
You see, what was strange was that when I ran konqueror as root, it worked as it should. It was only from my login account that I was having problems.
I assumed I could solve it by copying the root account's settings for konqueror to my account, as so:
/root/.kde/share/config/konquerorrc ---> /home/cheesygit182/.kde/share/config/konquerorrc
but that did nothing.

I put up with it for a while, every now and then racking through the konqueror settings, to find nothing.
Then, I stumbled across the "File Associations" section of the settings, with options such as "Show file in embedded viewer" or "Show file in separate viewer".
I thought I was on to something, so I changed the option for the "inode" group to "Show file in embedded viewer", and the same for the "Embedding" tab of the "Directory" options withing the "inode" group.
It worked! Goodness knows what changed it in the first place, it seemed to happen without me doing anything.
Anyway, for anybody who has the same problem - change the "File Associations" options for directories.

Hope this helps somebody!
