This seems to be obsolete -- there's no choice to use firefox available.
 Grepping the ports tree produces only 2 ports that mention WITH_MOZILLA
(mail/mail-notification and deskutils/google-gadgets) and in those
cases, WITH_MOZILLA is an OPTIONS setting, ie. effectively a boolean.

This is the default, and the only choice at the moment.  There is meant
to be an option to use libxul-devel if desired, but there isn't actually
a libxul-devel port in the tree right now, so it won't do anything for yo=

You can just delete them.  If you want to see what WITH_GECKO does in
mre detail, look at /usr/ports/Mk/
