Perhaps what you seek is:

pkg info -d firefox | xargs -L 1 pkg install -f

Also try editing your local config file


For example mine is currently:

gtk-application-prefer-dark-theme = false
gtk-theme-name = Adwaita
gtk-fallback-icon-theme = Default
gtk-icon-theme-name = Adwaita dark
gtk-font-name = DejaVu Sans 10


You'll need to ensure any icons and fonts are installed

gtk3-widget-factory, installed with gtk3, is a great 
testing/visualisation tool
