We are ready to help you, but you will have to come to us with more information e.g. output from the command line, system informations or similar. No offense but this is a waste of time and does not help anyone.

Please post
Code:
uname -a
pkg info -E firefox
pkg info -E chromium
Run firefox / chrome from a terminal, post output as Alexander88207 suggested.

The binary for Chromium is called chrome.

BTW, i have used chromium and firefox from packages recently and had no issues. For KDE the web browser www/falkon is recommended.

I guess you customized the build settings while installing the port? To me it seems like a library (libfontconfig) was built without a set of functionality that libpangoft expects to be there.

How much RAM do you have on your system? it sounds like low memory.

I see. Side note: If you don't want to adjust options you could as well just install packages and save the time compiling as the outcome will be the same. In any case you somehow managed to end up with a version of libfontconfig that's missing functionality required by libpangoft.

What version of FreeBSD are you running? I am not sure if you have already stated this in your other threads.

Edit: I've just build libpangoft on a fairly vanilla 12.1 release system using default options and there is no FcWeightFromOpenTypeDouble import in libpangoft. Only one for FcWeightFromOpenType which is what libfontconfig actually exports. That raises a couple of questions about what you are building there...

OK, if stating the version you are running is asking to much i figure you don't need any further help. Fact is you have an incompatible set of libraries on your system that does not seem to exist in a vanilla 12.1 release version. How you managed to get those i can only guess (mixing ports and packages, mixing port versions, running something unsupported, an actual bug, ...) but i am positive you will sort things out on your own.

Only if built in a clean jail(8) (via poudriere(8) or synth(1))... And I suspect a newbie would just build make install clean inside the ports tree, which is not clearly documented as asking for trouble in the Handbook...
rbrick49, for the time beeing, please strongly consider to go with pre-built packages supplied via pkg(7). While you explore & learn the OS, you can set up one of the mentioned poudriere/synth to build a few selected ports with different knobs applied (hint: devel/ccache).
Concerning www/chromium, there have been build failures in the recent past. Also have a look at the alternative www/iridium.

If you are in need of the package try the quarterly repository, same version, pkg add after download:

fetch https://pkg.freebsd.org/FreeBSD:12:amd64/quarterly/All/chromium-84.0.4147.135.txz
