I made this a long time ago but hopefully this should still work. You will need to inspect element and replace the entire HTML with this:
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
<img src="INSERT IMG URL">
<!-- After making the thumbnail, switch the current thumbnail to the generic thumbnail (the one with the website name in it) and save it. This will clear the current thumbnail, allowing the new custom one to appear. After saving the generic thumbnail, open the thumbnail editor again and go through the options to find your newly made custom thumbnail! --!>
Honestly it's a bit overkill, but I find it's the most effective and simplest way to get those custom images in. You will need to host the images online (like imgur) due to security reasons browsers won't load local images on websites on the internet.
@sgunhouse I seem to have missed that step lol. Thank you very much, sgunhouse, this solves it. Kinda inelegant solution to me, though, because, why not just allow the complete deletion/erasure of the text, as does another browser? But I guess that's just how it goes. Thanks again!
