Feature Request: Preview a web page without having to navigate to a new tab


I am here to make a request for a new feature for FF android mobile app (perhaps for ipad and iPhone OS too). It is to incorporate a page-preview when long pressing a hyperlink in a website. Such a feature is available in many browsers like Brave or Safari (for iPhone).

Any add-on that does this is perfectly fine for me too!

It is most useful to me when reading articles which has tons of secondary info linked along with the main content. In such cases a quick preview saves a lot of time as opposed to say opening the link in a new tab, switch to it, read it, and navigate back to main content.

I hope the ask was clear.
Thank you!
