I can confirm the same behavior here (4.7.3).  However, I don't have 
every bit of kde installed and don't use konqueror much any more.  Imostly 
kept it installed to use as a second browser, when firefox breaks or I 
want to compare page-display, so I wouldn't be able to tell you when the 
filter functionality broke.  (As a file manager, I tend to use mc in a 
konsole window for most things, along with gwenview for image and video, 
and dolphin works well enough in its role of glorified file dialog, so I 
rarely have a use for konqueror in file management mode at all, except 
for questions such as this.  I tend to switch to mc where many might 
switch from dolphin to konqueror, I guess.)

Of course, this was exactly the sort of thing konqueror fans were worried 
about when dolphin became kde's default file manager... konqueror losing 
development focus and various bits of it going bug-riddled and broken 
until it's no longer of much use.  Oh, well...

Something else to check altho as I said, it doesn't appear to make a 
difference here:  In konqueror, settings menu, configure extensions, you 
should have the directory filter extension listed and checked.

Maybe try toggling that off, restarting kde, then toggling it back on and 
restarting?  Hey, it used to work many bugs of this sort back on MS.
