Enabling DNS-over-HTTPS In Firefox

English

Enabling DNS-over-HTTPS in Firefox is simple, but you need to do it manually.

DNS-over-HTTPS works by sending URLs to a DNS server over encrypted HTTPS.

The point is to hide your DNS queries from third-party observers.

With this protocol at play, those observers won't be able to sniff out your packets and tell what websites you're about to access.

Enabling DNS-over-HTTPS in Firefox is simple, but you need to do it manually.

  • Open Firefox, click the menu button, and then click Preferences.
  • In the resulting window, scroll down to Network Settings and click Settings.
  • In the Connection Settings popup, click the checkbox for Enable DNS over HTTPS.
  • In the dropdown, select either Cloudflare (which is the default), or select Custom to enter your choice of DNS servers.

If you go the custom route, you have to have a DNS provider that supports DNS-over-HTTPS (such as CleanBrowsing, Google Public DNS, Quad9, and Yandex.DNS).

The new settings will apply, without having to restart your browser.

Once you're done, close the preferences window.
