Default Routing DNS Requests?

Firefox now has a banner stating they are routing DNS requests (whatever the hell that is) to a partner service to provide protection. OK or disable?

I would think the DNS request is handled by the Windows connection or your router.

It's up to you if you want to use an alternative DNS server for your browser sessions, particularly if you want to leverage DOH.

Should always use secure DNS requests, especially on your phone.
