[Affected versions]:
- Firefox 63.0a1 - Build ID 20180903220141

**[Affected Platforms]:**
- All Windows
- All Linux
- All Mac

[Prerequisites]:
- Have Firefox profile with the following prefs in the "about:config" page:
	- "browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.asrouterExperimentEnabled" with "true" value;
	- "browser.search.region" with "US" value.

[Steps to reproduce]:
1. Open the browser with the profile from prerequisites.
2. Open a new tab and navigate to the "https://www.youtube.com/" website.
3. Repeat step 2 another 4 times.
4. Observe the right part of the "Address Bar" on the last opened tab.

[Expected result]:
- The "CFR" recommendation button is displayed in the "Address Bar" on the last opened tab.

[Actual result]:
- There CFR recommendation button is not displayed at all.

[Notes]:
- After a browser restart, the CFR recommendation button will be displayed on the first opened "Youtube" new tab.
- Attached a screen recording of the issue.
This behaviour is expected: We trigger this particular message based on the frecency value of `youtube.com`. We update the `topFrecentSites` cache in our targeting code every 6 hours (or as described in the STR, on restart).
