Details

For brand new Profiles, the @google and @amazon Search Shortcuts should show up in the user's default Top Sites under the following conditions:

- @google will be added as #1 Top Site for all countries where Google is the default search provider
- @amazon will be added as the #2 Top Site for all countries that have Amazon as a default Top Site.  In the case where Amazon is the only Shortcut added, it will, of course, be the #1 Top Site

Oh, this is the new profile version of bug 1480508. Not new profile version of bug 1480504.

From Slack conversation with Maria:

We will pin the @google shortcut for new profiles only if Google is _not_ the user's default search engine. This means it won't appear pinned for new profiles in most of Europe/North America.
Another update based on feedback from execs:


We will pin the @google shortcut for ALL users.
Update 8/6/18: 
Google/Amazon should be pinned in that order to the first open position in everyone's Top Sites (regardless of frecency).

Example: New and existing users who don't have any top sites pinned will see Google in first Top Site position and Amazon in second Top Site position (regardless whether they have visited these sites).

Existing users who have pinned Top Sites will see Google in the first available unpinned position and Amazon in the second available unpinned position.  If there is only one unpinned position available, Google will take it.  Whenever a second position gets unpinned, Amazon will take the spot.
The rules for pinning/unpinning are not changing.  Users will be able to unpin the newly added Google and Amazon if they wish so (like any other pinned site).
Fixed, along with Bug 1480508, in commit https://github.com/mozilla/activity-stream/commit/725532f6f8e922944ab28c484f38a1c933770ab7

I have verified this on Windows 10 x64, Arch Linux and Mac 10.13.3 with the latest version of "Firefox Nightly" (63.0a1 - Build ID 20180812220618) installed and I can confirm that the "@google" and "@amazon" search shortcuts are displayed in the "Top Sites" area. "@google" is pinned in the first position and "@amazon" is displayed in the next available position.
