How can i disable the preview of frequently visited pages, when opening a new tab


With one of the latest firefox 12 nightly updates, 9 frequently visited pages are shown in preview pictures, when a nwe tab is opened. So my problem is, when i'm alone porn sites are opened, but when i have guests, i don't want them to see those pages in that annoying preview pictures.

I think i'm not alone with that Problem.

If you see the warning, you can confirm that you want to access that page.
