do you use it? I have been testing both ways again for the last 2 weeks, ( all non scientific of course ). But with this connection here in Fl. my perception is that FF is faster without it. So many times FF seems to hang for a bit and I see in the lower corner the TLS handshaking waiting there. Without the DNS enabled over HTTPS, it just does not hang. Seems like anyway. Anyone else have a thought on it, or not enable it?

I use it, but don't mind/notice much slowdown. I did see a blog somewhere this past week that DoH was slowing Firefox down. I couldn't find it with a quick search, but you're not alone seeing a slowdown.
Do, or do not. There is no try.

There is actually bug report pertaining to this, reported while using the Linux version, with the DoH box not checked, Firefox still uses DoH. Bug report shows the Target Milestone is the 95 Branch.
