Screenshot of the error message

I've installed FreeBSD 11.1 (64-bit) with Gnome 3 (3.18.2) recently. The problem is I cannot access USB flash drives formatted in NTFS through Nautilus. It's alright with FAT though. Everytime I plug in a usb flash drive or try to mount it choosing on the sidepanel I get this error:

Unable to mount the volume <Name>.
mount: illegal option -- m usage: mount [-t fstype] [-o options] target_fs mount_point.

I tried to mount the device manually, using the ntfs-3g command and it worked like a charm! 

Some info:
There is fuse_load="YES" in /boot/loader.conf and fusefs_enabled="YES" in /etc/rc.conf. Also I installed fusefs-ntfs.
