I'm not sure if you're asking about port-building or your desktop
environment. I'll go with the former.
If you add
to your /etc/make.conf file, then any browser ports that depend on
mozilla like (on a GNOME system, anyway) galeon, epiphany, and yelp,
will use firefox as their core instead.
On the other hand, if you're running GNOME 2.12, you want to look under
Desktop -> Preferences -> Preferred Applications. The "Web Browser" tab
should be the first one to come up.
