Steps to reproduce:

I loaded up the new tab page.


Actual results:

Some thumbnails are missing. Only for URLs not completely loaded, which could confuse end users and make the feature of the new tab page less useful.


Expected results:

Every single thumbnail should have loaded.
Severity: normal → major
If you middle click that particular site and refresh the new tab page afterwards, is the thumbnail loaded?
Yes, but my point is that this will likely confuse new users.
Agreed. There have been several reports related to thumbnails for the New tab Page. A new custom storage will be implemented in bug 744388 to mitigate those. This issue should be fixed when that is resolved.
Depends on: 744388
