Yeah -- the ports switched from jpeg to jpeg-turbo sometime last year.
Try installing jpeg-turbo first of all, then do a general 'pkg upgrade'

That should mean you no longer have any packages with a dependency on
plain jpeg.  Then you should be able to install firefox smoothly.

Take home message: pkg(8) does not do well with selective updates; you
need to keep all your installed packages up to date.
