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
systemctl status whoogle:

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
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.
