  1. DNS over HTTPS with Firefox


    If you are tired of your DNS requests being looked at, or if you just want to encrypt all your Firefox DNS traffic:

    This works in all up to date and beta/nightly versions as of 67.0.4

    With Firefox open, click on the

    and then click Options.

    Scroll all the way down to the bottom where it says Network Settings

    Click on Settings and look at the bottom for these two:

    Check the box to Enable DNS over HTTPS and then select Cloudflare as your Provider.

    Click OK and then close Firefox, and once you reopen it, your DNS will go over HTTPS unless Cloudflare is down, then it will default back to regular.

    :)

    (firefox) Disabling https checks

    This was for Firefox *Smile DNS over HTTPS with Firefox :)
    Folks here were kind enough to suggest WF as an alternative, hence my saying will be trying it out.

  3. (firefox) Disabling https checks

    WF still uses 98% of the Firefox add-ons. Troubleshooting is still the same, and about:config is still pretty much identical in many settings.

    dns probe finished no internet


    Hi Oxide,

    After some trial-and-error testing of all suggested fixes, which I found over the internet, here’re what worked for me to solve "DNS Probe Finished No Internet" issue and might work for you as well.

    Method 1: Change Default DNS Address to Open DNS


    Here all you have to do is change your default automatically obtained DNS server addresses to open DNS or Google DNS. To do this, follow below mentioned steps:

    Step 1:
    Right click on Network icon located in Windows Task Bar Menu.

    Step 2:
    Click on ‘Open Network and Sharing Center.’

    Step 3:
    Click on Local Area Connection with whom who are presently connected and click onProperties.

    Step 4:
    Select ‘Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)’ and click on Properties.

    Step 5:
    Now in newly opened windows, select the radio button that reads ‘Use the following DNS server address:’

    Step 6:
    Now in the ‘Preferred DNS Server’ box type in 208.67.222.222 and in ‘Alternate DNS Server’ type in 208.67.220.220.

    Step 7:
    Now check the box that says ‘Validate settings upon exit’ and then click on OK. That’s it.
