If you want to install 32-bit binaries that use gtk (or any other
libraries), you need to make sure you have 32-bit versions of the
libraries installed.  Do you.  Do "pkginfo -i | grep gtk" -- do you see
gtk 2.6.7-1 and gtk32 2.6.7-1?  The gtk32 package in opt-x86_64 puts
everything in /usr/lib32, so make sure that path is in /etc/ld.so.conf.
If not, add it and run "ldconfig".  It's possible that you may need to
add the path to the 32-bit gtk libraries manually to whatever command
line you use to install the 32-bit firefox.  There may be other library
dependencies that I've not yet provided 32-bit version of as well, and
you'll need to satisfy those yourself.  Running
"ldd /path/to/some/executable" will tell you what libraries it's
expecting to find.  If it's a 32-bit executable, you'll need 32-bit
versions of those libraries.

Last time you were having trouble with gtk, I asked you to make sure you
have all the ports you need, and to make sure prt-get.conf has the right
paths, in the right order.  Are all these things done?

What errors are you getting in particular?  Knowing this'd help.
