Why are you running Firefox under wine? There is a native Linux version...
As for IE, you could try ies4linux, but I haven't had much success with it.
Your best option would probably be sthg like VMWare or virtualbox...

BTW, there's a native acroread package, although it might be somewhat
old (search for "lucid ppa acroread" or sthg similar).
In any case, it should not be needed since there's a PDF (+ other
formats) viewer in Ubuntu: evince (named "Document Viewer" IIRC), but
