I cant chain Proxy’s in kali linux

  kali-linux, proxy, tor, virtual-machine, windows

Hey I am new to ethical hacking and I was following this tutorial and did everything he said up until he typed proxychains firefox www.google.com that is when I got this error

ProxyChains-3.1 (http://proxychains.sf.net)
No protocol specified
Unable to init server: Could not connect: Connection refused
Error: cannot open display: :16.0

I have been searching google for a while now and this is the closest thing I found to solve this problem but I dont get the solution he said. btw what he said was

Netstat -antpul and make sure 9050 is listening. If not check proxychains.conf and see what port 
it’s supposed to be opening and make sure that is listening. If nothing, you didn’t start it correctly.

and I also changed the proxychains.conf file here it is

# proxychains.conf VER 3.1

#
dynamic_chain
#
#Dynamic - Each connection will be done via chained proxies
# all proxies chained in the order as they appear in the list
# at least one proxy must be online to play in chain
# (dead proxies are skipped)
# otherwise EINTR is returned to the app
#
#strict_chain
#
# Strict - Each connection will be done via chained proxies
# all proxies chained in the order as they appear in the list
# all proxies must be online to play in chain
# otherwise EINTR is returned to the app
#random_chain
#
# Random - Each connection will be done via random proxy
# (or proxy chain, see chain_len) from the list.
# this option is good to test your IDS :)

# Make sense only if random_chain
#chain_len = 2

# Quiet mode (no output from library)
#quiet_mode

# Proxy DNS requests - no leak for DNS data
proxy_dns

# Some timeouts in milliseconds
tcp_read_time_out 19000
tcp_connect_time_out 10000

# ProxyList format
# type host port [user pass]
# (values separated by 'tab' or 'blank')

[ProxyList]
# add proxy here ...
# meanwile
# defaults set to "tor"

socks5 184.181.217.210 4145

thanks in advance
