using tabs in default browser (konqueror)

When i click on a URL link (in an email for example), it launches in Konqueror. When I click on the 2nd or 3rd link, it launches other instances of Konqueror instead of opening them up in the tabs. How can I change it to open in tabs?

I already have the setting for "open links in new tab instead of in new window" checked under BEHAVIOR settings but still no luck.

The "open links in new tab" is actually under Web behavior. There is another Behavior. In that one, de-select "open folders in seperate windows".

Thank you for the comment but it didn't seem to work. Let me be more specific. From Konqueror (ver 3.1-15 (using KDE 3.1-13 Red Hat)), under the Settings --> Configure Konqueror menu, there are multiple icons on the left side.
The first one is Behavior (with a folders icon). In it, I have "open directories in seperate windows" unchecked.
The fifth icon is Behavior (with a web icon). In it, I have "open links in new tab..." checked.
Despite this, it still launches multiple Konquerors & not multiple Tabs. Could it be anything in the Profiles settings?
