Chosen solution

Hi myrna_murchison, I don't think this bookmark is included with new Firefox installs any more, so you may need to create your own. There are a few steps, but it's not too bad.

Do you want the list to still be the top 10 or would you like to increase that? I'll mention where to make that change as we go.

(1) Create a new bookmark on your Bookmarks Menu using the context menu

In the attached screenshots, I'm using the Bookmarks Sidebar for this, since it's easier to move things around in here. You can open that by pressing Ctrl+b, or on the menu bar, View > Sidebar > Bookmarks. (To temporarily display the menu bar, tap the Alt or F10 key.)

Right-click Bookmarks Menu and choose New Bookmark.

In the name field, you can enter Most Visited (or whatever you like).

In the location, paste the following places query:

place:queryType=0&sort=8&maxResults=20

Here I've got the maximum number of items at 20 -- the last two digits -- instead of 10. You can use any number you like.

It should look like the first attached screenshot. Then click the Add button. Firefox creates a bookmark with a globe icon, but it doesn't work yet.

(2) Move the bookmark to a different container

What I mean is, if you created the bookmark in Bookmarks Menu, move it to Bookmarks Toolbar, and vice versa. When you drag and drop the bookmark to its new home, Firefox will recognize it as a smart bookmark folder and change the icon. Then it becomes usable. Please see the second screenshot.

Success?
