Firefox depends on gtk-2.4.0, which depends on atk. All of these problems relate back to updating dependancies of glib-2.4.0. The question at this point is what you updated and the order. If you were starting out clean, a portupgrade -rR glib would have done most of this but I wouldn't bet money. I eventually did a -rf glib to get things built cleanly.
