Have you tried using the FoxyProxy standard add-on. I know that is what I would do if I needed to use a socks5 connection on Firefox, however I have not tried this in a while. Here is a link to the IP Vanish VPN website that demonstrates how to configure FOXYPROXY to add a Socks5 connection.

Good luck.

In the future, please add more information next time in your questions, as a very vague question that you asked above: " why is my socks5 connection not working? " Is very hard to diagnose without more information about your browser, computer, settings of your computer and browser, and a little information on the Socks5 connection you are trying to use.
