Today when I hit the plus symbol to open a new tab, instead of the nice miniatures I'm used to there comes a search engine: snap.do. Which I never installed or anything. So I was wondering: how do I get my miniatures back and if I can't how can I at least get it to open a decent search engine like google.

hello, first please go to firefox > addons > extensions & remove any suspicious entries (toolbars, things that you have not installed intentionally, don't know what purpose they serve, etc). also go to the windows control panel / programs and remove all toolbars or potentially unwanted software from there and do a full scan of your system with security tools like the free version of malwarebytes & adwcleaner.
afterwards install the search reset addon - it will revert the most common customizations those adware programs do in firefox back to the default: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/searchreset/
It worked! Thanks so much!
