As you can see here, newer versions of IE have serious issues with Wine.
So I would think, if you really want to use IE, then use it on Windows. You will find several Windows programs that will not run or run badly with Wine. Most of them have native alternatives in Linux. You should give them a try.
If those applications don't fit your needs, you have to ask yourself a simple question: If you don't want to or can't use Linux applications, does it really make sense for you to run Linux?

To the OP - From what it looks like, you should just install windows. I am not trying to get you to not use linux, but with the attitude you brought into these forums, and asking us to do everything for you, I personally think you should stick with windows for now. Just my

I understand that. But if the OP already has IE installed in windows, why would he/she want to try to use IE within an emulated OS on top of the original platform for IE?

I could see that point, but I think more logically; Windows is the native OS running.....

In Firefox /Iceweasel click on Tools>> Add-ons>> Get Add-ons you'll be able to get plenty of add-ons without googling. Big catalog.

In what way is this related to the OP's problem?

TOBISGD there are many themes that are available in firefox that you don't have to google for and are available to firefox that emulate windows. google is good but if op goes to FF addons they save time and get what they want and also easier to install from addons window.

Get on google and search for firefox add-ons, go to the firefox website, and search for the user agent add-on. It's really not that hard
