Ian, we purposely don't screenshot about:home because it'll just show up as all white. Do you want to include a stock thumbnail to show for it as a special case?

Hi Brad, we actually shouldn't be showing thumbnails of about: pages at all on the start page, as per bug 710392.

That said, as a general rule whenever thumbnails aren't showing up, we should be using the light blue placeholder image that Dietrich referred to.
Ian - what about in the tab menu? When the about:home page is open, it has a crappy tab thumbnail in the tab list (menu)
As per our conversation in IRC, I'll make a special "about:home" thumbnail for use in the tab menu, and post it here soon.
Poke poke, Ian?

These thumbnails won't work out when about:home recieves a channel-branded styling (bug 710260). Is that considered a problem?
Hm, yes I would consider that a problem. 

I'll make some channel branded ones as well.

I need new set of resources. Currently we use 136 X 78 for the thumbnails. @ibarlow: Could you please post newer ones?
Attached patch PatchSplinter Review
This patch shows the awesome thumbnail in Tabs-tray. :)
However, I need newer resources. Once I get them, I can replace those.

rename the resource to "abouthome_thumbnail"

Also, the resources have an extremely large footprint size. Can we try to reduce the size a bit?

r+ with the changes addressed. don't land until Ian get's newer (and hopefully smaller) resources.

Sriram, here are updated assets, also in Nightly and Aurora flavours!

(sorry for the cloud link, my bugzilla uploader is busted again)

I've included PNG and JPGs, feel free to use either. The PNGs are still around the same file size as before, but the JPGs are considerably smaller.

Pushed the patch for Firefox alone. Saving the other thumbnails to be landed when we implement content-branded UI.
