This should work in Wine for the Mac.  BTW, where did you get 1.1.15?  Did you build it yourself?

There are Registry keys that were mentioned in previous messages that you should look at in addition so that you can configure this.

Since I am a fellow Mac user, I will attempt to get the complete installation package for Firefox 3 and install it following the guidence provided here.
