As long as Firefox is open and I visit websites, they will show up on the "most visited sites" when I open a new tab (clicking on "+"), but as soon as I close Firefox and re-open it, the "most visited sites" is now blank. I refreshed Firefox, my config are : browser.newtab.url = about:newtab, Firefox will: Remember history...

Thank you for your help.

Do you still see history when you check that in the history sidebar (Ctrl+H)?

In case you use "Clear history when Firefox closes" or otherwise clear history.

  • do not clear the Browsing History

Clearing "Site Preferences" clears all exceptions for cookies, images, pop-up windows, software installation, passwords, and other website specific data.

Thanks a lot for your time. Indeed my new anti-virus was messing with the browsers.

Cheers!
