When you say emulate firefox do u mean get IE to become like FF. Becasue they are totally different stuff.

Win4linux is something new to me. I perfer virtualbox which does a very good job even better i think.

Here is an add-on for Firefox which emulates different versions of IE and other user agents. You may give it a try.

Good luck
