Firefox does not render pages after src update

I recently updated from 5.9-DEVELOPMENT v5.9.0.583.gcfe60-DEVELOPMENT to 
5.9-DEVELOPMENT v5.9.0.609.g7dae3d-DEVELOPMENT. After upgrading to 609 
Firefox rendered pages (any page) as if you did a 'cat' on a binary 
file. I pulled down the latest dports and did a git pull. I removed 
firefox (pkg remove firefox). I did a make install, but that did not 
change anything. I removed all references to mozilla in my $HOME and did 
a pkg install firefox. There was no change. With each upgrade (see 
update history below), I tried to uninstall and reinstall firefox, but 
it still fails to render any pages. Fortunately Chrome works. Any and 
all suggestions are welcome.

Update History:

5.9-DEVELOPMENT v5.9.0.567.g4be474-DEVELOPMENT

5.9-DEVELOPMENT v5.9.0.609.g7dae3d-DEVELOPMENT<-- Firefox stopped 
working correctly

90% of my problems are due to ignorance, the other 10% is because I just don't know any better.
