With the patch from bug 1029148 applied, this is intermittent locally, but failing consistently on the try server (https://tbpl.mozilla.org/?tree=Try&rev=7930d58a0081).

AboutHomeUtils.snippetsURL is a lazy getter, so if it's called for the first time before the test has started and changed the value of the pref, the test causes external network requests.
