    So i am trying to use SOCKS5 proxy with mozilla firefox using foxyproxy but it is not working. I tried changing proxy, reinstalling mozilla etc. Whenever i try to connect to even google search...it shows connection not secure or something like it. Even whoer.net don't load. I am able to use http(s) without any problem.

    I think this is a firefox issue. I had the same issue and apparently only HTTP proxies work.

    You could try to use a proxy manager tool, like proxy cap to manage your proxies from there.

    Or if you are on linux, you can use proxychains.
