Given some of the plans around more features being added to megabar (eg bug 1623666), it'd be nice to have a user visible preference to control some of the magical features.

Top Sites on `about:home` can be controlled by `about:preferences`, but no corresponding preference exists for `browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus`. It would be nice to make this user visible in order to cater to users who want a more legacy appearance, or who would prefer to not show their top sites on screencasts (for example).

For the privacy argument, see:
