Thumnails disappeared! How to get them back? Tried every solution on the forums

I tried changing "browser.newtab.url" value to "about:newtab" but after when i restart the browser(after changing the value) the value of "browser.newtab.url" resets to default automatically Smiley Sad I have also tried by resetting my browser to default. But after sometime same problem occurs! Screenshot: http://s15.postimg.org/4bhl034jv/Untitled.jpg

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 Smiley Happy
