Your post is a bit ambiguous. did you have 0.9.3 on your system and 
wanted to upgrade to 1.0 or did you update your ports but it installed 

What I would do:

my ports-sup file:

*default base=/var/db
*default prefix=/usr
*default release=cvs tag=.
*default delete use-rel-suffix
*default compress

 > su
# cvsup -g -L 2 /root/ports-supfile
(normally i'd just run pkg_version -v |grep "<" and if needed 
portupgrade after cvsuping, if I was upgrading something like Gnome or 
KDE i'd exit X)
# cd /usr/ports/www/firefox
# make deinstall
# more M*
# make WITH_OPTIMIZED_CFLAGS=yes install clean
# exit
