DNS Leak

In my cfg file for firefox i use a custom DNS server (Quad 9 which uses 9.9.9.9). It appears this causes DNS Leaks while using a VPN.

The line is this: lockPref("network.trr.uri", "https://dns.quad9.net/dns-query"); Obviously instead of writing 9.9.9.9 this line uses the above shown adress.

If i want to use cloudflare which is 1.1.1.1 instead of 9.9.9.9 what adress do i have to use? Still haven't figured this out...

The address in about:config here is https://mozilla.cloudflare-dns.com/dns-query

(I am curious to see whether that has to be moderated.)

OK, the address had to be moderated so I am posting it again with a blank space which you will have to remove.
