However your FreeBSD is on EOL (consider migrating to a newer version,
at least for the sake of security updates), but I had similar problem
on 10.3, I guess the problem is Firefox is updated but some libs that
it depends on is not being updated (mine was libdbus, which Firefox
needed libdbus-1.so.3 after update, but it was -1.so.2 still).
Do a upgrade on your packages/ports, and it'll fix it.
Best regards, MMokhi.
