I can't be sure since I currently don't have WINE running IE, but this appears to load correctly.

It is possible that the problem is with Java not JaveScript.  This is quite likely if they are 
all secure (HTTPS) sites.

If so, the simple fix is to install the latest JRE from Sun which includes the JSSE that is 
needed to run Java on a secure site.
