DOH was not, but neither was "Proxy DNS when using SOCKS v5". This
solved the problem!
I used the "Burger menu > preferences", not the "about:config", that's
why I missed it, I guess.

Now, when I type "host.myself", I'm "redirected" and my LEHO
"" shows up in the URL bar! The shield icon says
"verified by GNU", which is what I was expecting, but the page remains
empty! I'll try again with Firefox and Chromium later.

I'll write a proper report and submit it there [1][] then.

Thanks again for your help!
