Make Facebook mobile apps to open links in browser

Facebook recently rolled out new feature that shows your latest Facebook messages on popup on your current browser tab even if you aren't logged on Facebook. Facebook asks first time that do you allow them to send you popup notifications or not, and user doesn't always know what that means in reality. If you feel that these popups are annoying you can disable them in couple of ways.
