Every post out there that tries to fix the problem of thumbnails they do the following or something similar

$ killall thunar
$ sudo apt install tumbler tumbler-plugins-extra ffmpegthumbnailer 
$ thunar -q

and that's it, they open thunar, and thumbnails magically appears, but the ugly truth is You need to restart your machine.

    You can restart tumblerd instead of restarting your computer also. – Alex Ozer Apr 16 at 22:48
