Can we turn off this feature? Edited

Jira is replacing URLs with a tag. It is hiding the URL text and instead using a couple of words from the SEO (or something). It is drastically hindering my workflow. We have eight locales we work with, and I need to know out of a list of eight links, which one to click by seeing the locale in the URL. This is NOT AN IMPROVEMENT. I need to be able to turn this off. Can this be turned off? 

Here is an example showing two links WHICH ARE NOW OBSCURED: 


Do you see how I can't tell these links apart now? Please let me know if this is an option that can be turned off. Thank you.

I created a suggestion to allow users to select the default behavior for this functionality:

I came across a similar discussion here in Community some days back - so in case you are interested in a follow-up be sure to check also this thread:

Linked is a Suggestion ( which is referred to by as "Option to Disable Smart Links For Non-Atlassian Products in ADF editor".

It might make sense to put this onto watch-list also.
