Understood. I checked and I cannot see that I am using DoH (DNS over https?) in Firefox. Since I have a vague memory of having had a similar problem with chromium in the past, I highly suspect it is a bug in the browser.

Where can I find the older release, ie 88.0.4324.150 of chromium? It is no longer in EPEL.
