Firedragon setup

Hi everyone,
I am currently interested by Dr4g0nf1r4's project called 'FireDragon', which is a fork of LibreWolf. I am a newbie in networking area, so I can't understand why this happen:

I want to use whoogle as my search engine, but even after I installed whoogle package, it still return error:
Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at localhost:5000.
I did tried to change my profile, but it didn't bring any help, the problem still persist.
EDIT: I can visit sites, but not searching with whoogle. Other search engine is fine, if I did install the corresponding packages.

Though I like this web browser that really protect my privacy very well, I won't be using it as my default browser, because too many privacy settings will bring me a lot of extra works to manage exceptions.

And thank you all for helping, even your read is a help for me. Any suggestion will be appreciated.

Please provide output of systemctl status whoogle, this pretty much looks like the service isnt running :eyes:

Yes, that explains why its not working. Please try updating your system (whoogle update pushed) which also restarts the Whoogle service upon upgrade. Then try again :thinking:
Is there anything else running on port 5000? I just verified it works correctly on my machine.


Okay, I will update it now, and probably check if it is working a few hours later.
