Picky picky. XUL on X11 uses GTK.

I imagine they picked it because it's got less license baggage accompanied with it than QT does, especially for non-free projects.
And the desktop project supporting it has less services baggage accompanied with its apps.

Also it's written in C where QT is c++. IIRC firefox, xul, and mozilla are all in C?

firefox/mozilla are written in C++ - that's why GTK-dependent parts in Mozilla's code look quite strange sometimes.
