This article concerns a ring property that arises from combining one-sided duo factor rings and centers. A ring $R$ is called {\it right CIFD} if $R/I$ is right duo by some proper ideal $I$ of $R$ such that $I$ is contained in the center of $R$. We first see that this property is seated between right duo and right $\pi$-duo\textbf{,} and not left-right symmetric. We prove, for a right CIFD ring $R$, that $W(R)$ coincides with the set of all nilpotent elements of $R$; that $R/P$ is a right duo domain for every minimal prime ideal $P$ of $R$; that $R/W(R)$ is strongly right bounded; and that every prime ideal of $R$ is maximal if and only if $R/W(R)$ is strongly regular, where $W(R)$ is the Wedderburn radical of $R$. It is also proved that a ring $R$ is commutative if and only if $D_3(R)$ is right CIFD, where $D_3(R)$ is the ring of $3$ by $3$ upper triangular matrices over $R$ whose diagonals are equal. Furthermore\textbf{,} we show that the right CIFD property does not pass to polynomial rings, and that the polynomial ring over a ring $R$ is right CIFD if and only if $R/I$ is commutative by a proper ideal $I$ of $R$ contained in the center of $R$.
