I don't know what the issue was, but it appears to have been fixed in the current branch. You can download a snapshot (e.g. from http://ftp3.usa.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/snapshots/amd64/ or another mirror) and it should work now.

The firefox package installs a binary called firefox. The firefox-esr package installs a binary called firefox-esr.
