Default scompat extract failed

I've installed FreeBSD v7.2 via internet mirror. All seemed well except during the "late night odyssey", I observed a message with wait stating that the scompat extract failed. This is what I know about the creature:
Also, I cannot start FireFox:
(firefox-bin:47583): Gtk WARNING **: cannot open display:
Does this have anything to do with the extract failure of the scompat?

Otherwise, how to start FireFox? I've googled, and searched the forums . . .read some things about not running X systems as root, but then again, something about FireFox needing to run as root the first time so that some permissions, etc. can be established?
