Yes, according  to their wiki,  it will  blacklist domains that  fail to
resolve via DoH for a period of time and use normal DNS resolver.

I've already changed network.trr.mode to 5 on all of my Firefox profiles
that I can at the moment.

There's one  question I have... in  the network.trr.confirmationNS there
is wonder if I need to block this as well:

Of course, these are the current defaults  and I wonder if I don't alter
the defaults  if Mozilla  will assume  that it's  alright to  modify the
default and thus undo any blocking I might have made.
