The plugin and character setup works with firefox 3.5. The installation fails with a page fault.
What does not
What was not tested
I did not try any workarounds. Tested in a fresh and clean wine environment.

1) configure wine to use a 1024x768 virtual desktop and set the version to windows XP
3) go to the beta site and donwloadthe game
4) if there are graphic bugs (blocky shadows) launch regedit and add HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\AppDefaults\BFHeroes.exe\Direct3D and then make a new string and call it OffscreenRenderingMode then set its value to fbo
5) if the game crashes at the charater selction then delet the battflield heroes folder from the home directroy
6) have fun playing the game
