Firefox uses GTK+ because Mozilla used GTK+. In the early days of Mozilla, there were versions for GTK+, Qt, and Xlib, but Qt wasn't free at that point and development stalled.

I think there is a plugin under development to allow Gecko to run in Konqueror, but as far as a full Seamonkey or Firefox under Qt goes, I think those have been dropped.
