WebKitGTK+ 2.4.9 is an old version that has been deprecated long ago.
It s not maintained anymore and has several bugs (including security
The WebKit1 API is also deprecated. Use the WebKit2 API instead.
I recommend you to try the last version of WebKitGTK+ (2.10.7).
You can find the last stable tarball at http://webkitgtk.org/
To check if AC is working, you can for example load poster circle  in
the MiniBrowser. If you see a 3d-tube spinning, then it is working.
