[Bug] Footnote links are active in Editing Preview mode
Open, LowPublic

Description

From OTRS:
https://ticket.wikimedia.org/otrs/index.pl?Action=AgentTicketZoom;TicketID=11861992

Found a bug which is easy to work around once discovered, but results in work loss.

Steps to reproduce:

  • Find an article with 'Efn'-style footnotes (e.g. "List of Star Wars films").
  • Edit a section of text that has a footnote which contains a wikilink (e.g. § Unspecified future films.)
  • vPreview the edit (after adding some dummy text if needed).
  • View the footnote and tap on the link it contains.

Result:
You will be directed to the linked article and the in-progress edit will be unrecoverable.

Expected behavior:
Clicking a wikilink in Preview mode should only display a preview of that article, even if it appears within a footnote.

I’m using iOS 14.6 (18F72) and version 6.8.1 (1815) of the mobile app.
