Recently someone solved a problem with the same symptom by
changing the ownership of the profiles of Firefox and Thunderbird,
the were b0rked and couldnt' be read.

Checking... All files in ~/.mozilla and its subs are owned by my user
and my user's group and have rw (x for dirs) as a minimum for user (some
have r and rw for group).  Likewise for ~/.thunderbird.

might try mv .mozilla .moz-backup
and then try starting it again.

Tried that.

The slightly more painful operation might be to upgrade
the whole dependancy tree under firefox/t-b.

I think this would be:
portupgrade -ufR firefox* or summat (I'm fairly certain
from the original post that you've portupgrade installed).

Was about to try that (see below)

Note that works as advertised here, and I don't
use dunndarbrydde. was commited last night, so it's probably a recent breakage. I just found a bug report on it at http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=95100
So we have four confirmed cases of firefox not working.
