Should I Disable DNS Over Https in Firefox If Using Cloudflares DNS Servers In Ethernet Adapter?

more options

I am using Ethernet for my network connection for my HP Desktop and in my Ethernet Adapter I have my IPv4 set to use Cloudflare's DNS servers 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1 and in my IPv6 I am also using Cloudflare's DNS servers 2606:4700:4700::1111 and 2606:4700:4700::1001 . My Network Profile is set to Private and I have file and printer sharing disabled. My question is that should I disable DNS over HTTPS in my Firefox(default)browser Connection Settings? I may be wrong but to me it feels a little redundant using Cloudflare DNS Servers in my Ethernet adapter and using Cloudflare in my Firefox Connection Setting as well. I would greatly appreciate any insight and suggestions and also should I have "Use system proxy settings" checked.

Thank you for responding. It is just as stated in my question. I am asking whether I need to keep my "Enable DNS over HTTPS" checked in my Firefox connection settings (I am using Cloudflare) on my desktop computer. I am using Cloudflare's DNS Servers in both IPv4 and IPv6 in my Ethernet Adapter under "Use the following DNS server addresses".

I used to have both plus DNS selections in my computer network manager. (I have changed to a different Internet Service Provider and don't dare touch its router settings.) It caused no problem of which I was ever aware.

Thank you very much for your reply. I do not see where it would be a problem to keep both. My ISP is Spectrum so there is no way I could access their router settings.

Cheers
