Konqueror and Hotmail.com

Mon Nov 05, 2012 5:18 pm
Hi,
It happened that I am on KDE 4.6.5 and as it has been for years (at list since KDE 3.5.X), Konqueror still can't open e-mails in Hotmail account. Since this behavior has been around for so long, it seems to be a feature, not a bug :D . So I'd like to ask if there are any changes in newer versions of KDE - is it possible to read (to read! I can view a list of messages, but can't open a single one) e-mails in Hotmail account? FYI, Firefox, Opera, Chrome and Midori do not have any issues with that as far as I know, only Konqueror.
I made a search on the forum and the latest topic is dated 2010...

Thank you.

in Konq do you use webkit or khtml (see view -> view mode) ? I use webkit and emails open fine

Thanks for the tip, but I do not have any options there apart from KHTML and Embedded Text Editor... In Settings/Configure... the only available engine is KHTML too. Maybe they added Webkit support after KDE 4.6.5?
UPD. Made a search and installed KWebKitPart, which allowed me to switch between KHTML and Webkit. Seems to work fine but looks kind of... unusual. But overall it is OK. Thank you. Solved.
