Maybe. Please provide more details. :)

Seems the --use parameter is supposed to do that,but if I follow you, then a configuration option would eliminate the requirement to use that parameter. The --use parameter would remain but a katerc option would force everything to open in the current session window. That would much better simulate the MDI.

I have copies of the 3.4.3 and 3.5.0 kdelibs and kdebase sources, if that would help.

Before we travel that tempting trail, first we need to verify whether this Firefox problem is repeatable with other users. I will not be embarrassed if the problem is at my end because of some oddball configuration.

Second, we should try to resolve bug report 692 ( because there might be a relationship with this Firefox bug.
