Wierd -- shouldn't happen, as it's based on Mozilla, which has always
had decent frames support.

Actually, it works anywhere. If you have GTK+ libraries installed, it
will theme via the current GTK+ theme (1.x only, though; and not all
elements theme).

No need to compile from source -- they provide binaries, which you can
install either into your system tree (/usr) or run from anywhere. The
binaries are built off the current stable development version of
Mozilla, so they don't even require Moz to be installed. However, if you
have Moz installed already, it makes using plugins a little easier (I
symlink to the Moz plugins directory).
