Do you have firefox set to use DoH? That could change the perspective
of whether there is a DNS issue.

With centos-7 you can use chrome, you don't have to use chromium.

I use the rpms for chrome, for both the stable and beta releases --
currently at 89.0.4389.114 and 90.0.4430.51 respectively, from
google's repository without any issues.
