Hello,

What is the setting to DISABLE thumbnails in Google search results, or ANY search engines? I have the opposite problem of most users here LOL.

I do NOT want to see thumbnails on any search results from any search engines. The closest solution I've found on these forums from back in 2013 no longer works (see below):

Do you mean the thumbnails that you see on the about:newtab page?

You can create these Boolean prefs on the about:config page to prevent Firefox from generating thumbnails for the about:newtab page.

  name: browser.pagethumbnails.capturing_disabled with value: true
  name: pageThumbs.enabled with value: false 

You can right-click on the about:config page to open the right-click context menu and choose New > Boolean to create both prefs as a new Boolean type pref.

You need to delete the thumbnails folder in the Firefox profile folder to remove already stored web page thumbnails."


Thanks in advance for the assist! :-)
