I'm not sure if you are talking about the changes that cause the border to not 
be displayed when a window is bumped against a screen edge.  (the outer border 
used to be used as the "magnet" on a corner, but now the border is placed 
offscreen with the edge of window content being abutted to the screen edge)

The plasma developers argued this change based upon Fitt's Law 
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fitts%27s_law) IIRC, though i don't know the 
exact argument that was used.
(I personally am one of the detractors of that -- it should definitely be a 
user-controlled preference)

Anyway, as the KDE Window borders have always been WAY to small by default, i 
rarely use them, and instead you Mouse/Keyboard accelerators:

    <ALT> + <Right-Mouse-Button-Drag>

can be used Internally NEAR an edge or corner of a window to resize it.

    <ALT> + <Left-Mouse-Button-Drag>

moves a window.

So, just get within an inch of a corner of a konsole window with 
"<ALT><Right-Mouse-Button>" and drag the corner where you want.

In Plasma5 this is the ONLY way to resize the plasma panel popups (K-Launcher, 
notifications, etc), as there are no active edges/corners to grab :-( )

Now, instead if this is a window-rule you accidentally (or intentionally got 

    $ kcmshell4 --list | grep -i rules   (kshell5 --list | grep -i rules   # in 
    should show you 'kwinrules'.
    $ kcmshell4 kwinrules
* kcmshell is a direct route to 'systemsettings' application, and kwinrules is 
same as title-bar Context (right-click) -> "More Actions" -> Window-Manager 
Settings -> "Window Rules" 

You probably would have a rule in there that had an override in 
   [Appearance and Fixes]
        [X] No titlebar and frame   [ Action Context ]  [X] Yes  [ ] No
