There is an 'IE Tab' extension for Firefox, but it requires the ability to run 
the IE layout engine, which is what runs the ActiveX controls.  You need WINE 
to run IE on Linux.  Crossover has historically been the recommended way to 
get this working; you can run full-up IE on Linux using Crossover.
