How do I disable link previews?

In Firefox on iOS 13 there is the link previews feature. I find this annoying and it is also a security and privacy concern.

It can be disabled in Safari, but how do I disable it in Firefox?

There isn't a way to prevent link previews from working on iOS Firefox. You could suggest this to the development team by following this link:

Hi ,

Totally agree with the initial post on this topic. This feature should be off by default when in "Private Browsing' mode. It should also be possible to turn this feature off in general.

Very annoying when opening a new tab that the page is loading in preview.

It happens regularly when I want to copy a link but do not want the content to load in anyway, not in a full browser window, nor preview.

Just made a suggestion to the development team to implement the possibility to disable it.

Hope we will soon see this. Might even be a reason for me to switch to Chrome (though I don't really want to).
