Idea Suggestion: Add an option to bypass the Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) links that Google/Bing use and go straight to the original publishers website on the mobile version of Firefox and Firefox Focus.

Reasoning: The Brave web browser already supports this, as does DuckDuckGo, and AMP links can be annoying/unnecessary and could be used for tracking, which can compromise user privacy. As AMP is exclusive on the mobile web, it would be unnecessary to add it on the desktop version.

Yes please! I think Firefox should implement more of these privacy-oriented features by default!

I suspect an extension could do this, but as that type of extension would need to monitor every navigation you make, I'd much prefer this being a core option in the browser.  +1!

 You shouldn't need an extension to disable AMP, it should be a setting, as it's a privacy concern. Originally Firefox automatically bypassed AMP, but recently Google found a way to still force it.
