How to test a link before posting?

Hi all, I've seen links that do not work or they go to something other than intended. bremner being a recent example and I have also done it before. I can copy and paste a URL into the reply box but it does not become a link until I have posted it by which time it is too late to correct. Is there a way of checking first that it is what is intended.

wiz-king, I don't get a preview box most of the time, I don't have one now nor the options for bold etc that used to show.

Using FF with Adblock Plus. Removed some other add ons that had appeared from somewhere, now working, thanks.
