hello, is there an icon on the top-right of the page that allows you to switch the thumbnails on or off?

otherwise you can either install the searchreset addon to get rid of the problem or manually reset the page that opens on each new tab: enter about:config into the firefox location bar (confirm the info message in case it shows up), search for the preference named browser.newtab.url and double-click & change its value to about:newtab.

New Tab Page – show, hide and customize top sites
