I finally got my laptop upgraded to 11.2. I almost always just start over. This 
time I thought I would try to upgrade the system. Basicly I am seeking advice on 
how/if this might be done. It has been a while so "pkg upgrade" shows the 
following needs to be done:

    Number of packages to be removed: 1
    Number of packages to be installed: 16
    Number of packages to be upgraded: 307
    Number of packages to be reinstalled: 28

In the past I've just run pkg. This has not worked out so well, I was thinking 
maybe do firefox, libreoffice, and then gimp. Then xfce followed by the rest.
If anyone has had success with workstation updates, I'm keen to know how you did 

My issue has been mostly xfce does not play well with firefox. Thanks for any
