That should already be disabled in Tor Browser as we ship it, no?

+          // We shouldn't leak autocomplete result in the private context.
+          if (!Services.prefs.getBoolPref("browser.urlbar.speculativeConnect.enabled") ||
+              this.input.inPrivateContext) {

The code changed slightly due to https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1355443, but it is disabled due to Tor Browser being in private browsing mode. (I've not thought about whether it is actually a good thing to do but I think we are good here following Mozilla).
