Firefox broke on FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE

I have a bad fried FreeBSD 7.1 disk so I am just trying to run my FreeBSD 6.2 until I get a new computer, but I seem to have broke my firefox.  I could try reinstalling and stuff but I was doing that actually, and I think the port make hung strangely.  I am including a couple of pictures of what it looks like when I try to start firefox from a terminal

that usually means x is not allowing your program to connect. give this a try first as root, replace 'username' with your username.
xhost +local:username
or to allow everything
xhost +

also make sure there is nothing overriding your DISPLAY variable.
Is the firefox binary and start script the one that came off the 6.2 disc?

Can you run xdpyinfo in place firefox does not run?
Are you sure problem is from installation and not from your actions?
Is Xorg from packages or from ports?

It will not continue to work after reboot unless you add the allow host to the following file, one entry per line:
/etc/X0.hosts

localhost
