[nSLUG] KDE with Mozilla/Netscape bug

I've got this annoying little problem, which started happening about a month
ago. I'm currently using KDE for my desktop, and my browser of choice is
Mozilla. Whenever I double click in the address bar of Mozilla to enter a
url or highlight any text on a webpage, and whenever I hit a link that opens
up in a new window, one of the KDE menus pops up and of course takes the
focus. I then go to close the menu (it has a cancel selection), at which
point it trys to run Konqueror. Talk about slowing productivity.
I was running regular old Netscape before this, and the same thing started
happening, forcing me to give up on Netscape. I had previously tried Mozilla
0.91, and 1.0, but it was like surfing the web with cold molasses, so I
When I tried the new Mozilla, I found that it was quite speedy, so I
rejoiced. Unfortunately, this annoying problem started happening with it too
(after using it for 2 weeks, problem free).
I've determined that the problem is with KDE, because it doesn't happen in
any other window manager. I rather like KDE, and would prefer to keep using
it, but this popup menu thing is driving me nuts.
Has anyone else had an experience like this? Any suggestions? I know it's
not really something that one would know about unless it happened to them.
Thanks for any help.
