The problem is that firefox-3.6 requires at least jdk/jre-1.6.10.
So if you need firefox+java you have to use www/firefox35 (3.5.9).
Other browser have no such restriction on java plugin version.
For example you can try www/seamonkey2 (former mozilla) if you want a gecko based browser (same engine used by firefox) working with java plugins available on FreeBSD.
