Here’s some issues I found with your log that might help.

  • Enabling Accurate Multiplication is recomended in certain games. If you are experiencing graphical glitches, try enabling this option.

This is a known issue, you can either update your mac os or use an older citra build, take a look at the open issue and try the mentioned citra builds:

btw, not a lot of people seem to try the mac os web drivers, currently only available on 10.13, you can try that.

Mac Citra giving error "Your GPU may not support OpenGL 3.3, or you do not have the latest graphics driver" and can't play the 3ds games

You can also use citra.exe from terminal.
