Which version of Safari is it?
You may find that it simply isn't very well supported in Safari.
Unfortanately as great as Wine is, it's not a universal Windows
replacement (yet). Application support seems to get better with every
release but due to the amount of Windows applications out there you may
find that it may take a while to get supported.
Anyway, if it's just the looks you're interested in then this may be a
good alternative... https://foxdie.us/
It's a set of Safari looking themes for Firefox. It does include a font
which may need installing but it's certainly worth trying.
Other than that this guide will give instructions on how to add Safari
like functionality to
Firefox (note: the first plugin iSafari theme is no longer available so
you'd have to use the above theme)...
Hope this helps.
