| Hi dep,
| your second question first: if you use middle mouse button to click
| on the file kpdf is launched as an external player. You don't
| change your settings in Konqui.
| For the first question only a guess: If you use the back button
| instead of the up button, doesn't reakt Konqueror correct?
| Hope that helps
