ISTR there were some keyboard issues on Linux but I'm afraid I don't have any details - perhaps in 
this list's archive?

Well, Flash plays (on Windows at least) if you put the plugin in the right place but mouse & 
keyboard doesn't work. I've spent a considerable amount of time trying to beat it into shape with 
only a limited amount of success. AFAICT, it requires a lot of changes to the Mozilla code.

Java doesn't work at all for me.

Yeah - that's the latest version - Gecko == FF

There are some changes we make to the Mozilla code before it's built (available via a patch) so 
linking against a local version may build but some things may fail. I'm a bit surprised anything 
appears on the screen for example since ISTR making some changes in the Mozilla code that renders to 
a buffer. I'll take a look.
