So what do you prefer about it? I think the firefox GTK connection is probably because of long standing licensing issues. Qt is commercial product developed and owned by a single entity, not an idea i like, even if there are safeguards in place. Pure Qt applications are generally unpleasant in X, just look at skype, KDE applications often behave strangely under other desktop environments, maybe that's another reason why GTK was chosen?
