I used to use Firefox 1.0.6 included with SuSE 10.0RC1. It had some sort of KDE
integration, e.g. there were icons in the menus and the whole app looked like a
KDE app (styles etc). Perhaps this was also because of the fact that the default
GTK+ style on SuSE is rendered like the KDE style.
I upgraded to firefox 1.5 beta and now the app has a completely different style,
e.g. there are no icons in the menus any more and the colors of the menus aren´t
those set on my system.

Reproducible: Always

This was likely done by your distro. If I am correct then you will need to wait
until your distro makes a Firefox 1.5 release.

What is changed to make firefox using qt/gtk+ (unfortunately since both toolkits
look the same on SuSE I don´t know which one is used). If it is just a setting,
then I could do this myself.

I think Kevin's right. Where did you get your build from? Could you paste the
configure arguments from about:buildconfig here? I think this is just a matter
of your build not having qt enabled in it.

I downloaded the linux beta from www.mozilla.org
my buildconfig arguments are:

Build platform

Build tools
Compiler 	Version 	Compiler flags
gcc 	gcc version 3.3.2 20031022 (Red Hat Linux 3.3.2-1) 	-Wall -W -Wno-unused

--disable-freetype2 --enable-svg --enable-canvas --enable-static --disable-shared

Do I have to build the source myself for qt integration of beta versions or are
there any binary packages available?

Yeah. This is just an issue of the mozilla.org build not having qt enabled in
it. To solve this, you can either compile Firefox yourself with the flags to
enable qt, or you can wait till SuSE releases their own binary of it.
mozilla.org doesn't release binary builds with qt enabled (AFAIK), but you might
be able to find some by Googling.

Why not? Many users use KDE, so if QT works (and it does work) you should provide them IMHO.

KDE-Firefox intrgeartion has worsened with Qt4 and Firefox 3.x
This bug was reported on Firefox 2.x or older, which is no longer supported and will not be receiving any more updates. I strongly suggest that you update to Firefox 3.6.3 or later, update your plugins (flash, adobe, etc.), and retest in a new profile. If you still see the issue with the updated Firefox, please post here. Otherwise, please close as RESOLVED > WORKSFORME
No reply, INCOMPLETE. Please retest with Firefox 3.6.x or later and a new profile (http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Managing+profiles). If you continue to see this issue with the newest firefox and a new profile, then please comment on this bug.
