Interesting, I'd have accepted it, as a native speaker. It just sounds less strong than lieber, it's rather a tendency or an inclination than a real preference.

The top hints point to: Ich habe liber Orangen über Äpfel.

Ouch. With "als" instead of "über" it could pass, maybe.

What is wrong with "Ich habe Orangen lieber als Äpfel."? I just did an exercise where Duo ask us to translate "Ich habe Katzen lieber als Hunde."
