2FA/yubikey workflow

I have 2FA set up for a site with my yubikey. Comparing the workflow on Chrome and Firefox,

chrome: enter username/password -> press button to launch 2FA -> dialog pops up, press button on yubikey -> done.

firefox: enter username/password -> press button to launch 2FA -> dialog pops up asking me to use my mobile device, click "use a USB key instead" -> click ok -> new dialog pops up, press button on yubikey -> done.

Is there a way to turn the extra steps in firefox off? I do not want to use a mobile device passkey, I'm perfectly fine with my yubikey. Something in about:config maybe?
