Hmmm, something is amiss:

   [root]  ~>portsnap update
   Ports tree is already up to date.
   [root]  ~>cd /usr/ports/www/firefox
   [root]  /usr/ports/www/firefox>make
   ===>  firefox-16.0.2,1 has known vulnerabilities:
   Affected package: firefox-16.0.2,1
   Type of problem: mozilla -- multiple vulnerabilities.
   => Please update your ports tree and try again.
   *** [check-vulnerable] Error code 1

   Stop in /usr1/ports/www/firefox.
   ** [build] Error code 1

   Stop in /usr1/ports/www/firefox.
