Problem with konqueror

Hi everyone.

I'm using KDE 3.3.1 and suddently I got this wierd problem with Konqueror. First it was working perfectly, but suddently it seemed to have forgot all file associations. So I tried to edit them, but I was unable to get in Konqueror configurations. No error, no nothing. And if I try to open some file, it promts the question "specify aplication" and that list is complitly empty.

And this problem seems to be onlu on one user account. Others works just fine

So I'm lost here, where should I try to start locating the problem?

I'm running KDE on Fedora Core 2 if that makes any different.

Well, something bad happened. If the other users are OK, you probably just deleted some vital configuration file from that user's home directory.
You can either spend hours trying to work out exactly what, and fix it, or take the lazy route:

-Create another user account.
-Move the malfunctioning user's data files to the new account (changing their ownerships and groups as necessary to reflect this).
-Delete the malfunctioning account.

Hope this helps.
