Thank you for your reply.

I understand your comments.  However on both my machines running Q4OS 
and Trinity 14.05, Konqueror reports "malformed URL"  for any of the 
strings I type in the address bar.  As does Chrome and Firefox.

Using a terminal doesn't work unless I use a root one.
To be able to drag n drop using a browser would be nice particularly 
if it didn't alter permissions on the way.

I wish it was as easy as you say it should be :-)
