issue is gone, however the option to use GTK2 instead of GTK3 is not
available in all of them, i.e. in gMTP and Firefox among others.

pkg upgrade -r firefox-test -f www/firefox
Both of them reinstall only the Firefox package. There is 241
dependencies when building Firefox with default options so it's kind of
difficult to reinstall all of them manually. How do I force to also
