welcome

only enter name as chomium firefox … (we have chomium and not chrome :wink: )

Ok.How about the other program can i start them from command?

You need to find out the full name of the program and just type it into the terminal

at you to edit menu for find command (kde, xfce is different) or search bin in package
or use autocompletion for search : chromtab , opentab , firetab

Try

google-chrome-stable https://manjaro.org

to open in Google Chrome (Stable) the Manjaro home page for example.

Another way is to set Google Chrome as your default browser and use

xdg-open https://manjaro.org

to open the same page.
