When one mouses over the minimized browser tab in the tool bar, it usually pop's up a preview window of the website. I made some changes to my viewing pref's and no longer see the full preview, only a placeholder. How do I get it back?
thanks.

Are you referring to THIS?

Or, type about:config in the Firefox address bar.

Scroll down to: browser.taskbar.previews.enable

Double-click it to toggle it to True.

I have the setting to show the preview and does not show. I have the same setting on another PC and it does show.

Have you tried reinstalling Firefox? Do you have the latest version?

Are you keeping your Firefox profile when reinstalling Firefox?
