Installed latest version 3.4, no mouse, firefox 19.0.2 not compiling, any advice or suggestions?

The errors that kept firefox from working would be useful, but in the
meantime: You can download a pre-built (pkgsrc, not dports) version of
firefox-19 with:

(if you are on i386)

(if you are on x86_64)

For the mouse...  I'm guessing, but: look at your xorg.conf and set
/dev/sysmouse for the pointer device?   If that doesn't work, maybe
/dev/ums0 instead?
