In Firefox 78+, when the cursor moves into the address bar, a list automatically opens showing the first 8-10 of your Top Sites from the Firefox Home / new tab page. Type a space in the address bar to show the classic frequently visited URLs list. In Firefox 83+ you can click the History search button on the bottom of the address bar drop-down to show your frequently visited URLs.
If your Top Sites list is not helpful you can make it better suit your needs:
- Cleaning up your Top Sites list: Customize the New Tab page
- Turning on the Top Sites section of the page: Hide or display content in New Tab
