Thanks it worked! I edited my user.js file and now my thumbnails in new tab are back!

What is the content of the user.js file?

The user.js file is only present if you or other software has created it, so normally it wouldn't be there.
You should check its content with a plain text editor if you didn't create this file yourself.

The user.js file is read each time you start Firefox and initializes preferences to the value specified in this file, so preferences set via user.js can only be changed temporarily for the current session.

user.js is present. I removed all the content in that file. There was only few words "((browser.newtab.url)')" something like that. So i removed it and now my problem is gone :)
